LBX Odin Mk-2

I got this kit over a year ago and only painted it halfway before I had to move across Japan. After that I pretty much stopped messing around with these things for a long time. Recently I decided to finish up this guy and after several weeks of occasional marker painting, here it is.

These were pictures I took of the kit over a year ago before I started painting it.

Here’s how it looks after painting with Gundam markers.

Overall views. As I don’t have most of my tools with me I didn’t fix the annoying seam lines on the kit.

The crown on this guy is ridiculously huge and blocks most of its face. Clear parts are used for the eyes and chin (no idea why), but the clear eyes aren’t too visible as is usually the case.

The arms are more bulked up compared to its predecessor.

The back is a mess and the arrangement of the wings makes them bump into everything all the time.

Legs. The loose double knee joints don’t make them much better than its predecessor though.

If you are patient enough when handling the kit it actually has a fairly decent range of articulation.

I like that most LBX kits have a very wide sideways range on their ankles.

This kit comes with a stand but it isn’t really adjustable so I used a Tamashii Stage instead.

The final battle against Mizel O-Legion in the second season was awesome, especially the parts where teamwork was involved. Unfortunately I didn’t buy that kit nor Minerva Kai so I can’t completely recreate any of the fight scenes. I had to rummage through all my cardboard boxes to find my Achilles D9 though.

Like Odin it has a simple transformation but if I remember correctly it wasn’t used as an Attack Function against the final boss in the anime.

ATTACK FUNCTION
GLORIOUS RAY.

The effect parts came from this set and you can re-use them for other kits too.

I realized I forgot to stick the sticker for the left shoulder. Oops. Paint-wise this guy didn’t require as much painting compared to Odin. I really liked the Hyper Function kits but it’s sad the whole merchandise deal fizzled out once the third season ended.

  1. Hey there, was able to dug out this kit out of my backlogs only to found out that it has been invaded by termites, ugh…. do you have the assembly guide book scanned ? Since to most reliable site HobbySearch didn’t provide one…any help?
