Here’s the very first TAG for unboxing on BoLS. It’s the Squalos – for Pan O of course.
Nine pieces is pretty good for such a large model.
Even if we start with something innocuous, like the legs, there’s still a ton of detail.
I’m fascinated that the chest plate for the torso is an extra piece. These big guys are AVA 2. I think they’re giving us the option to convert battle damage on one. Or maybe they just know enough about casting metal to not cast one giant piece.
On the back the exhaust ports are also a separate piece.
A look from the side shows one of the sockets that seem to define the latest Infinity releases, and also seem to make assembly such a breeze. Get a decent super glue and you won’t need to pin these legs at all.
This HMG is a much more exciting bit. I finally decided I think the canister is for cooling. The hopper is on its shoulder.
The other arm isn’t quite so exciting. But with PH 17, you don’t want to get punched by it.
The last piece is the head.
Like many of the pieces, there are some sprues to remove here. Just get rid of them with some clippers and file down the rest of the area. It’s really not that hard.
~Hope you enjoyed the photos. I hope to have this guy painted and blowing stuff away before you know it.
