We've had experience with different types of model kits, but this is our 1st time building a bust size model. So this is really something new for us. The cost is almost the same as a HG model kit. Inside the box are 8 runners, stickers and the manual. The parts on each runner aren't that many so we're expecting this to be a quick build. Not sure if there will be some articulation on the head. But we'll be surprise if it does. Now, it's time for us to build this model to see if its worth our time and money.
