Gundam AGE-2 Double Bullet Review

My first Gundam AGE model kit Gundam AGE-2 Double Bullet is now complete. I didn't think I was gonna like AGE-2's Double Bullet weapon pack at first, but after seeing it in action in the series I was blown away and had to have he's model kit. The Gundam AGE TV series is split across three generations each modeled similarly to the first three Gundam Universal Century series, with the AGE-2 being from the second generation with shares similarities with the Zeta Gundam TV series meaning Gundam AGE-2 has a striking resemblance to the Zeta Gundam most strongly in it's also a transformable mobile suit.

The Double Bullet weapon system is very nicely recreated here with the removable Beam Rifles and interchangeable Beam Saber blades with the shoulder mounted binders movable in three places, and even down to the pop up missile launchers on the back of he's legs. Transformation to Strider flight mode is fast and simple, and only involves the swap out of one part for another, awesomely a buildable flight stand is include in the kit to display the Gundam in Strider mode and flying action poses. I extremely pleased with this kit and it's recreation of the suit's abilities, my only personal want would be two additional larger Beam Saber blades to attach to the binders so he can have both hand held Beam Sabers and the bigger blades all engaged at the same time.
