HGBF Petit Beargguy (Bandai vs Dragon Momoko)

Hi guys :) This round I will be doing a quick comparison of Bandai (Light Blue) Petit Beargguy the comes with Beargguy Family, and Dragon Momoko (Pink).

Section 1: Head

First of all, the section that has the most parts, the head :)

The back of the head - inside

The back of the head - outside

The back of the head seems identical :)

The face - inside

The face - outside

The face also seems identical, but the Bandai version would have a small gap at both side of the ear to facilitate the removal of the ear(s) where the Dragon Momoko version does not have, as they have omitted the extra peg at the ears.

Could you observe the extra peg in the photo? That is what Bandai did to prevent the ear to fall off, where Dragon Momoko manage to overcome the issue by simply thicken the peg at the bottom of the ear(s).

The nose/mouth piece is identical too, with Bandai's nose sticker is much bigger than Dragon Momoko :P

Section 2: Body

At a glance at the assembled products, there are no difference. However, take a closer look at them and you realize that Bandai version is using a polycap on the back section of the body for the connecting hole for stand/base, where Dragon Momoko achieve the same functionality by extending a peg from the front section.

As for the ribbon, they are identical.

Body - front section

Body - front section

Body - back section

Body - back section

Section 3: Arms

Same design, same functionality :)

Section 4: Legs

Same design, same functionality too :P

Looking at the finished products, I can safely say that both are identical, with Dragon Momoko did a small bit of redesigning on achieving certain functionality without compromising the proportion, and the look and feel of Petit Beargguy :)

You can seriously consider this alternative if they are available in your local stores.

Cheers ;)
