And Proto Gouf has something i really like on giant mechs, asymmetry.
Proto Gouf is a thing of beauty. It's a solid looking mecha with just enough details to not look too busy. It's a great mix between curved shapes and angled lines, it's like eye candy to me.
His backpack his surprisingly intricate. I love those thick leg proportions, makes Proto Gouf looks beefy.
Proto Gouf have interchangeable arms and it's one of the main reason i bought it.
First he has the whip arm and the whip is bendy plastic where you can shape it anyway you like.
Then there's the machine gun hand. It's shorter and wider than what i've seen on standard gouf gun hands though.
The arms switch via pegs and claws that clamp on.
And finally there's the hand attachment arm which also comes with 2 hands, an open palm and a fist to hold things. The shield that attaches via grip on the elbow slots stays on pretty well. It also stores the axe.
Articulations are a mixed bag. The shoulders are great given the big pauldrons but anything below the chest is subpar. The torso has great articulation points but because of the hose attachments, it's severly limited. Same goes with the hips.
But other than that, knees and ankles are standard fare.
I had a lot of fun building this kit. The only problem i had with him is the crapload of stickers i had to use. Of course, the stickers are optional but Proto Gouf looks a better with them.
This is probably my fave kit, it's pretty solid and looks great.
Anyway, thanks for viewing!
