HGUC Char’s Rick Dom Review

Posted: March 1, 2010 in Gunpla Reviews

Time to review this huge guy.

Why I say huge? This guy really has huge parts, the feet, the legs, they are bigger than your average Gundam. Much bigger it seems. XD

Here’s the MS with all the weaponry.

The limit of the arms….. Not really well articulated

Leg articulation… A bulky unit like this doesn’t have that great articulation, it can’t kneel at all

The head has also very limited space to turn.

The back thrusters can move

I was impressed by the color seperation in the shoulder, but…..

Where’s the color seperation for the crotch below??!! It is supposed to be red on the inside…. Why couldn’t bandai follow the shoulder, where you can see the red inside?

The feet, nothing special, but…

You move the feet a little, and the thrusters are exposed!

And when you pull out the feet, the thrusters move along with it! Quite a cool effect!

The heatsaber

Char:Taste my Char’s SHINING FINGER!!! Confirm 3X as powerful, 3X as fast as Domon’s!

The standard Dom issue bazooka

The handle can slide in, quite a nice feature.

He’s not aiming for me, i hope….

And this is Char’s own custom bazooka, i believe.

Look at how huge it is!! Big guns, i like….

And thus, concludes this review!

Pros:

More weaponry than standard doms

Color separation for the shoulder armor is a bonus

For a bulky unit, the articulation is ok

Stable unit, won’t topple over easily

Quite detailed, especially the fingers

Cons:

The crotch inside didn’t have color separation like the shoulder

Heat saber doesn’t have active mode

Overall, i am quite pleased with this kit, easy to build, the parts snap in place just fine. If you are thinking of getting a dom, get the Char’s version, or maybe other HGUCs, don’t even consider the Seed’s version of the Dom. HGUCs are better detailed and well, much better!

Char: Target in sights…. Readying charging of bazooka.

    Well, the Doms are meant for high speed skating on land. So legs are bit redundant there…

    Lol… Amuro hadn’t noticed. XD

    Watch out Amuro! Your ass is gonna get bazooka’d!

    The HGUC Dom is quite nice but Bandai got lazy with the skirt. XD Ah well, at least they tried. ^^;

    that big fat leg could use some more panel lines, but i can imagine what kind of trouble that we get ourselves into when making a panel line in such a rounded shape..

    Fwah that bazooka is huge!! I think for a kit that old it looks pretty good out of the box πŸ˜€

    @ h4mster yea definitely adding panel lines will make it much better πŸ˜€ Reminds me of sazabi’s legs too.

    the hidden leg thrusters are cool, looks like he has giant bell bottoms lol the details in the hands are really surprising! not a bad kit at all ^^

    amuro is busy thinking about what hes going to do to sayla? XD

    at least not white stcik lol

    dom is so simple by looking, but inside it’s more complex than I thought. Comparing to my Aile Strike, your Dom has more complexity.

  9. heathorn says:

    cool gimmicks for the thrusters!

    luckily amuro has his shield on the back ^^
