[1/20] ATM-09-ST Scopedog (Bandai)

Hi guys :) Something different this round... the 1/20 Scopedog by Bandai ;)

Manufacturer: Bandai
Scale: 1/20
Origin: VOTOMs
Price: 5500 Yen

Part 1: Runners

Plenty of runners ;) Parts separation is excellent, and most of the gates are under-gate which is excellent ;)

Part 2: The Extras

This kit comes with water decals that is very nice ;)

Part 3: Pilot

There's 2 pilot figures... 1 standing and another sitting ;) Parts and color separation for the sitting pilot is nicely done but the standing pilot would need some masking.

Part 4: Pilot Seat

This pilot seat is very nice and very detailed ;)

Quick Review

Plastic quality, Parts & Color Separations

The plastics quality as very good as usual :) The parts and color separations are very nicely done as well. Most of the gates are using undergate therefore not much nub marks on the surface.

Bandai have done a very good job in the detailing of this kit ;)


Articulation is a bit on the negative side...
  • Head/Neck: No movement... Well, the head is not supposed to move but the scope/camera is moveable :P
  • Shoulder: Good! Old joint system but pretty good pose-ability.
  • Arm/Elbow: Normal
  • Wrist: Normal+
  • Hand: Normal
  • Waist: Normal
  • Skirt Armour: Very good
  • Hip/Tight: Very good
  • Knee: Normal-
  • Ankle: Good

Looks and Feels

This kit is amazingly high in details! I love it very much :) Articulations are its primary drawback but pose-ability is pretty good.

You need quite a lot of patience for this kit but the satisfaction is great upon completion ;) If you are look for something different than Gundam, this is a good choice ;)

Fin ;)
