Review: 1/144 HG - Gundam AGE-1 Titus

Model Number: AGE-1T
Pilot: Flit Asuno
Appearance: Gundam AGE
x16 Beam Emitters
 - x2 Beam Lariat
 - x6 Beam Knee Emitters
 - x8 Beam Shoulder Emitters

This is my first gunpla for the AGE series and I choose the Titus because of it's unique feature. The Gundam Titus is a quick and easy model to finish. It's the fastest HG model I've built so far. The designs are simple and it only required small panel lines. There are also few stickers which are located on the head and the AGE symbol for the chest. After completing the model, there are 2 blue parts left in one of the runners which can be used as alternative joints for the shoulders.

This model is like a football player or wrestler because of it's huge muscles. As you can see the arms and legs are bigger than any regular gundam. But despite it's buffed appearance, it still has some good articulation. Although you might encounter some weight issue depending on how you position the model. In this case you may want to use an action base. I also noticed that the back waist is a bit loose and wiggles easily. But aside from that, all the other parts are secured in place.

The armament of the Titus is very unique. Instead of the usual beam sabers and rifles, it make use of "Beam Emitters". There are 8 Beam Emitters on the shoulders, 6 on the knees and 2 Beam Lariats on the forearm. You could put all of these Beam Emitters at the same time to activate the "Maximum Output" mode of the Titus. This model kit came with only a single pair of hands which are two closed fists. Unfortunately, these hands are not capable of holding any weapon.

Overall, the Titus is a great model in terms of effect parts. I just love gundam models that has a lot of effects. It's even rare for a gundam model to have effect parts. So any gunpla builder would want to try out this model kit. Others may not agree, but I consider the Titus as a better model compare to the  AGE-1 Normal and Spallow.  Considering it's cheap price plus the effect parts, this model kit is definitely worth buying. It may have some flaws but it's not much of a big deal.

I enjoyed playing with the Titus and I assume everyone will like it as well. That's about it for the HG 1/144 Gundam AGE-1 Titus. Thanks for viewing and I hope you find it useful. Look forward for more gunpla model kit reviews.
