Bug Terminator The 3rd: Rise of the Moe Robo

The third of my personal army of bug repellent unit actually arrived at my den earlier this month alongside Nenpuchi Bakemonogatari Set #1 and Otacool 2… ^_^

RRX-7.8 Combat-san is a product of Hoi Hoi-san’s rival company Kinryu…

Please read the manga for more info on this… XD

It’s also no coincidence that Combat-san’s product number looks and sounds familiar – it’s a parody of RX-78-2 Gundam! :3c

I’ve yet to introduce the second in line of the army I believe.


H2 Bravo unit is here just a full moon before Combat-san actually… :)Bravo is pretty much identical to H2 with the exception of a new :D face plate (The older poker face plate is included as well) and assorted weaponry…

Her Heavy Machinegun is pretty much the jewel of her package… :P

She also comes with a giant hammer and a bottle of pesticide, of which I haven’t apply its water slide label…

Lookin’ into her eyes far too long will cause one to orz in adoration by having your soul sucked into her… XD

Such menacing yet kawaii stare… 0_0

Just like H2, Combat-san is blessed with mild articulations, allowing her to pose in various different limited ways…

Yet, due to her shorter skirt length, she can pose in many ways H2 cannot…

Spreading around her are Combat-san’s accessories and detachable pieces from her default outfit… ^_^

Like her predecessors before her, she comes with several pairs of hand units and a couple of weapons… Her skirt (Revealing a stark white pantsu underneath… XD), shoulder pieces and ear pieces are removable as well…

A couple of extra face plates are included allowing her to change the direction of her looking eyes…

Changing the face plate is done via swapping, of which you’ll need to remove her ear pieces first, then pulling off the front portion of her hair…

While usually placed facing upwards, you can reverse the placement of her ear pieces to face downwards…

Mmm… Can be used to show her emotion like an usamimi I guess, since her frown is standard issue… ^^;

I personally prefer asymmetrical thingies, so sometimes placing only one of Combat-san’s ear piece makes her much more appealing to me…

Combat-san’s weaponry comes in two flavours – the futuristic Rapid Rifle…

…And the arm mounted CQC Stun Unit…

As with all Kotobukiya’s releases, the weaponry is unpainted…

A gathering of my private bug repellent army… :P

Desktop wallpaper material! ~_^

Perhaps you noticed something under Combat-san’s skirt in my piccies all this while… ^_^ This is the said something, currently messed up by Bravo… ^^;

Got this lacy piece for RM 1.20 per metre which is equivalent to about USD $ 0.37 from a local hobby and handicraft store…

I’ve added the lacy piece onto Combat-san to form an underskirt for her, instead of using the one suggested by the manual…

While not pictured, Bravo also has the same upgrade on her… ^_~

See the black lacy piece on the manual? You’re supposed to cut it out and install it onto Combat-san’s skirt…

However, I feel that the paper craft will most likely ruin in no time as I pose Combat-san around… ^^;

A piece of advert is included inside Combat-san’s Plamo package, showing the prototype of the upcoming support unit for H2…

Hoi Hoi-san Mini! She’ll come with a cart for holding onto H2’s weaponry, looking adorably silly in her chibi form… XD

A pity tho it will be some time before Hoi Hoi-san Mini will see herself release as there are scheduled releases of Combat-san Tactical Suit Ver. and Pest-X-san before her… Can’t wait to get her… :D
