Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we’ve had to disrupt our monthly kit reviews. To restart our reviews, we decided it would be nice to try out something new! Today’s model is again a departure from our usual Gunpla kits, as we explore Bandai plastic model kits from the Hot-Blooded Strongest Go-Saurer (熱血最強ゴウザウラー, Nekketsu Saikyō Gōzaurā) Universe. It is Go-Saurer, the titular mecha of the series. It was given to the students in class 6-2 of Harukaze Elementary School on their opening ceremony by Eldran to fight against the Mechanization Empire. It fused with the classroom itself, which effectively made Go-Saurer a part of the school that has to separate from it when it’s time to move out.
The kit itself comes with a whopping 21 runners, including polycaps, and many repeated parts spread across the runners, with a small sheet of stickers included on the side.
From the overview, there is a nice range of coloured parts that are used, with the clear neon green and blue parts being my favourite. They add a nice touch to the flat parts that are present throughout this kit.
The Go-Saurer is a fairly large mecha, with several large pieces on its shoulders, legs and backpack. It can even transform into its smaller components, the Mach Ptera, Land Stego and Thunder Brachio. While the colour variation in the kit is a little lacklustre, part separation is excellent in some spaces, with a fair bit of surface detail that can be highlighted with some panel lining fluid. Because it can transform from mecha form to its smaller components, there is a great degree of movement for many parts. One can definitely expect to pose the Go-Saurer in many possible ways.
Because of the different components, not everything from the components can fit onto the Go-Saurer, or vice versa. Hence, there will be some leftover parts whenever one form is being used.
