Pretty Armor Ver.3

Hi guys, here's the HYPER Pretty Armor Ver.3 ;)

I would like to thank my friend Station Wensin II for his effort getting this kit for my review. Major stock should have arrived by the time this review is up, so please go ahead and contact  Station Wensin II to book your unit before it runs out.

Manufacturer: Unknown
Scale: 1/12 (about that)
Grade: None
Series: None
Price: TBA

Section 1: Runners

The plastic is quite nice and at a semi-gloss finishing. Parts separation is done nicely, and detailing are very nice too.

The figurine is exactly the same as Ver.1 and Ver.2, so I would not go so detail with the identical runners ;)

Snap-fitting experience in unexpectedly good. I did not have any snap-fitting issue, and all parts seem to hold up pretty well :)

Caution: the pegs at joints are quite tiny, so please use gentle force to avoid breaking. 

This kit comes with a set of water decal with many facial expressions of your choice to put on 4 blank faces provided on top of the 4 pre-printed faces.

Here are the runners for the Hyper Motorbike ;)

Section 2: The Armored Girl Figure

For this review, I'm not going detailed about each section of the main figure as it is the same as in Ver 1, with different coloring and some small options which I'll point out below :)

Differences: -
  • 2 sets of arms (ver 2 does not have the Action Arms with heavy armor)
  • 2 colors for arms and legs (separate runner, skin color and black color)
  • Optional parts for flat-chest
  • Helmet unit
  • High-heels ;)
Here are some quick build pictures of the main figure ;)

Head - This set comes with a helmet unit that is interchangeable with the usual head ;)

Chest - with an option for busty or flat

Torso - Same for all 3 versions

Butt - Same for all 3 versions too

Arms - I use the Action Arms

Legs - well, Action Legs, with high heels ;)

Here's the full figure ;)

Section 3: The Hyper Motorbike

The armor system is "transformable" to a futuristic motorbike for ver.3 ;)

Let's look at the motorbike mode first :)

The Core - Pretty nicely done with good detailing

The lower armor - I like the silver color finishing ;)

The shaft and wheels - Nicely done

Completing the Hyper Motorbike ;)

Here's the completed Hyper Motorbike

Section 4: Riding the Bike

This is the normal mode.

And here's the Hyper Mode, minus the deployment of the bottom wings :P

Section 5: The Hyper Armor System

The design of this Hyper Armor is pretty awesome!

However, this does not transform like the Mospeada bike... you have to basically take apart the armor around the bike and make it into the Hyper Armor :p

Same as the previous 2 versions, the manual and my review only showing the basic formation. You can construct a unique formation base on your imagination ;)

If you have one, or both previous version, you can even combine them!

This version comes with pretty simple weaponry: -

  • 2x katana (can mount on bike)
  • 2x handguns (can mount on bike)
  • 2x machine guns

My Personal Experience 

Same as my previous comment, this kit could actually address 2 different audience...

The first type is the Armored Girl fans. The figure is nicely done with many interchangeable options, and the Armor System are nicely done making her a legit addition to your armored girl collection.

The other type of audience are customization fans. The Armor System and Weapon System (Twin Spear) do add a lot of potential to customizing your other armored girls, Gunpla models, figures, and many mecha you can imagine :p

Parts separation is nicely done, with good detailing. Snap-fitting experience is pretty pleasant, and posing flexibility is very good. Just don't treat her like a Gunpla... you need to be a little gentle handling her :p

Oh yeah, have more patient... with great flexibility comes great frustration striking the perfect pose :p

... wait... this is all copy-and-paste from ver.2!?

... well, yea... what do you guys expect from the same model?

... okok...

The helmet is pretty nicely done, and you can put a face in it, and the windshield is movable :)

The bike mode is quite steady, and the figure can mount on it pretty nicely ;)

The weaponry is pretty lacking, but this won't stop you guys modifying it into Cloud Strife's ride with the 7-sword :p

And wait... there's a WHITE COLOR version too! Make it Storm Trooper or Captain Phasma's ride anyone?

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

Assembly Experience: Very good :)
Plastic Quality: Good :)
Parts Separation: Very good :)
Color: Good :)
Detailing: Good :)
Posing Possibility: Very good ;)
