the last few chapters of FFXV is a stitched up mess, you can tell they ran out of development time, but at least the ending was good enough to kinda make up for it (and they're apparently patching new story content in instead of leaving it like it is)
Okay, for a monster machine like this, with parts sticking out all over, and which is so top heavy it cannot stand on its own, the naming of "Ex-S" seems appropriate, considering the homonym "excess."
But gosh, it's sooo sharp looking... Let me come back to that point about standing up by itself: It can't. At first, when I saw that this kit came with a display stand to hold it up, I was greatly dissapointed, as I really was looking forward to building it. But then I started thinking about all the other Gundam kits of mine that have fallen over and broken or lost parts when I had them posed someplace, and I began to think that maybe a display stand isn't such a bad idea after all...
Of course the kit can transform into the long-range "G-Cruiser" mode, similar to the Zeta Gundam, and the display stand itself also converts into a mode specifically designed for displaying the kit when it's in ship mode. A whopping 31 runners of parts in all! Get ready for hours of cuttin' 'n' snappin' with this baby!
