First Look

PKA Update Kit

You've seen some of Brick Works' previous releases here in the form of some beautiful 1/20 figure kits out of the Maschinen Krieger universe. These figures are cast in resin and represent a series of pilot and maintenance crew to pose next to the machine suits and combat craft in the series. In this release, we have an interesting update for an old Nitto kit that has been reissued by several other brands, most recently Wave.

This set provides updated arm and leg articulating joints that are now the standard with the current production MaK kits. This set also provides a new set of clear parts for the pilot's head enclosure that now has nice clear transparency to replace the tinted/diffused clear parts of the original kit.

This set is definitely recommended!

My sincere thanks to HobbyLink Japan for this review sample!
