Haro Haro (Billion Spark Craftsmanship)


Hi guys :) This is a short one on Billion Spark Craftsmanship (I will further referred as BSC) Haro Haro.

For this, I would like to thank BSC for giving me the pleasure to review this kit, and thanks to my friend Station Wensin II for his effort for the arrangement.

Manufacturer: Billion Spark Craftsmanship
Scale: Unknown
Grade: None
Series: Any Gundam series :)
Price: TBA





Section 1: Runners

The plastic is pretty tough and kind of thick, but it just feel fit for this model :) Detailing is on point for the exterior, and very nicely done inside Haro's "mouth".

I've got the green-colored version, and Station Wensin did the red-color version; there are many color so please check with your local seller what's available :P

This kit looks straight-forward but certain section needed some force and some need special attention that the simple instruction manual does not explain enough (but I did some below).

This kit also comes with LED for the blinking eyes, some screws, and a screwdriver.
















Section 2: LED Installation

Since the kit is very straight-forward, I did not do much for the building process, but I felt the necessity to be more detailed in fixing the LED thus this section.

Let's fix up the upper part and start with the LED installation.



First, detach the LED set at the white connector.


Then installing the LED section to the top section (monitor) panel of Haro. Please take note of the direction illustrated in the following pictures.





Now, insert the LED to the eyes socket and installing the switch onto the monitor panel, screw it up, and you should only see the connector sticking out.







Now, the bottom part where the AAA battery goes ;) Just take note on the direction of the wire.





The wire will go under some other parts, so be careful on their placement.




Now, reconnect the 2 sections of the LED set and screw the lower (keyboard) panel to the lower section of Haro :)  Take note that the connector from the top section will go beneath the keyboard panel into the lower section.






Install a AAA battery, on the switch, and you would have blinking eyes ;)







Section 3: Posing? :)

Here are some more pictures.











This kit also comes with exchangeable accessories to make the following :P













My Personal Experience 

Finally, a Haro Haro :)  some might mistaken it to be a Pokeball due to the size :P The plastic is thick as compared to any Gundam kit but it is just nice for Haro at this scale. There is not much exterior detailing possible for Haro but BSC does make some nice detailing for the interior :)

Overall, it took me about 3 hours to complete this kit with review and photo-taking in mind; it should not more than 90 minutes otherwise. I have also redo the LED installation to take more picture :)

I'm all happy with this kit as is, but some of you could still make some modification i.e. improving the arms articulation with parts like Mega Size Zaku cannula :)

Overall Rating (Not giving points, just what I felt)

Assembly Experience: Good 
Plastic Quality: Good
Parts Separation: Very good :)
Color: Good
Detailing: Good
Posing Possibility: hahahaha... it's a ball-shape mech :P

Recommendation: Good for a change, and it's cute too :)

Since this a a ball-shape mascot, no comments on articulations :P


See you guys around :)
