Hi guys, today's a quick one for the Zeon (Sinanju) Logo Action Stand for MG/HG. I wouldn't call this a bootleg since there's none of the same from Bandai :P
Manufacturer: Unknown China Manufacturer
Suitable for: MG and HG model kits
Price: RM15 per unit (PM me at DuelMasterNG@yahoo.com for availability)
Section 1: Runners
One the base of the stand, the Sinanju logo, and one other runner for the parts ;)
These are all the component after assembly... straight build only takes less than 15 minutes :P
Section 2: Completed Stand
Pretty nice end product, just be a bit gentle with the small leg as it feels fragile :P
Side-by-side with Action Stand 1
Section 3: Action Stand in Action :P
Plastic quality is quite decent but the small leg is a bit fragile so handle with care. There is a lot of possibility with this stand as you could easily spray it gold. For RM15 per unit, this stand is a good value for money ;)

Hi guys, here's the 013 of Gao Gao, MG Infinite Justice ;).
Manufacturer: Gao Gao/TT Hongli
Origin: Gundam SEED Destiny
Price: RM85 (Those who are interested can contact me)
Please take note that I did minor detail coloring and some inner lining with gold and metallic red, so please do not expect that to be pre-colored on your kit ;)
Section 1: Runners
Detailing are pretty good for this kit... I would say it is up to 95% as good compare to the original. The plastics quality is the usual Gao Gao quality which is not bad ;)
Section 2: Effect Parts
There are quite a number of beam effect parts come with this kit as Infinite Justice can emit beam at it shins for melee combat.
There is also a beam shield effect part and a wire for the cutter mounted on its shield ;)
Section 3: Decals
As it is well known fact, Gao Gao is giving dry-sticker decal in the older days (this is the older batch... very old) and the quality are no match for today's decal by Gao Gao. The dry-stickers are in a shinny finish rather than the flat finish nowadays :P.
This kit have enough detailing that can go without any decals tho ;)
Section 4: Skeleton Build
Articulations are pretty good! A little limitation on the ankles but no big deal. I'm happy with it :)
Pretty straight-forward with mechanism to widen the hip spreading angle for dynamic action posing ;)
Pretty standard chest piece for most of SEED Destiny MG ;) The pull-out mechanism would allow the shoulder joints to be pulled out for more dynamic posing. The neck employed a dual-joints head could tilt forward and backward pretty well ;)
Excellent articulations for the arms ;)
Parts separations is very good! One minor flaw is that the peg for the front helmet and the back helmet is a bit tight so you might have o do some trimming in order for it not to leave a visible gap in between... don't be a JEDI here or you'll break something :P
Very good articulations ;)
Sneak Peek of the Backpack
More pictures in later section ;)
Section 5: The Legs
Pretty straight-forward build with very good articulations. Parts separations are well done with no snap-fit issue ;)
Section 6: Waist
A very nice waist ;) Parts separations are good.
Section 7: Chest
Pretty straight forward build. Snap-fitting pretty well here too ;)
Section 8: Arms & Shoulders
Fantastic arms ;) Minor hindrance of movement but not an issue. Parts separations are well done with no snap-fitting problem.
Section 9: Semi-Completed Main Mecha
Just for fun and comparison between armored and naked ;)
Section 10: StandART ;)
Section 11: Size Comparison
Size comparison with MG RX-78-2 OYW and MG Deathscythe EW ;)
Section 12: Backpack
This Fatum-01 flight backpack, equipped with self-discipline AI, provides Infinite Justice with high-mobility capability as well as doubling up as assault weaponry, with beam particles emitting from both wings cutting through enemy units along the path.
Section 13: Weaponry
Section 14: More Posing
Side-by-side with Strike Freedom ;)
Continue with More ;)
Plastic Quality and Detailing
The plastic quality is the usual Gao Gao/TT Hongli quality. The detailing are nicely done.
Articulations are very good!
- Head/Neck: Good!
- Shoulder: Excellent!
- Arm/Elbow: Excellent!
- Wrist: Normal.
- Hand: Normal.
- Waist: Good.
- Skirt Armour: Good.
- Hip/Tight: Excellent.
- Knee: Excellent.
- Ankle: Normal.
- Feet: Good.
Looks and Feels
The detailing is pretty good and come close to 95% of the original!
The snap-fit is also very nicely done, but there are some excessive plastics you might need to trim from certain parts... no big deal tho ;)
Bandai should have included a special stand for this kit, seeing that MG Strike Freedom and MG Destiny both have their own stand! MG Infinite Justice seriously need an action stand for it to he handsome ;)
Overall, this kit is pretty nice and could be a viable replacement if the original is you are tight in budget but want to complete the collection of SEED Destiny kits ;)
Still, for those of you who can afford, do buy original ;)
