Golden Hades Mini-Review w/ lousy photos

Weapon: Star Saber Sword
Hey folks, I hope I'm putting this in the right place. This is the first time I've had new content to contribute.

I won one of the 100 Golden Hades (金のハデス) microns from Takara Tomy's summer/fall sweepstakes and it arrived this evening. I thought I would share a few photos as well as my thoughts. I don't have anything new to say about the Hades micron itself, so I'll stick to fresh observations about this version.

Image

The box was nothing special. 2 sprues (that's the word, right?), a letter that seemed to have come off an inkjet printer, and the instructions/stickers.

Image

So far so good. I was extra careful cutting it apart and assembling it to avoid chipping the paint. The only stickers for this version are the three faction symbols for under the gems and his big red eye.

Image

My original Hades (with Darkness Megatron) suffered from slight size problems. All the joints were too loose and the gems fit too tightly. Happily, I was luckier with this one. I had assumed that the gold paint would make everything uncomfortably tight like it had with Gold RA and Silver Baro, but I was wrong. The paint tightened the joints, but somehow I got better fitting gems than last time. The result is a much more posable micron with less risk of scuffing the paint in assembly.

Image

All his modes are nice and tight without feeling like I'm going to hurt the finish.

Image

From the moment I knew I'd won one, my plan was to make it golden wings for Optimus to match Megatron's purple. There are a pegs on its flank thruster... things that fit perfectly into the micron ports on Voyager Optimus's back, giving him the chance to take shiny golden flight. I may end up moving Megatron's wings to Nemesis Prime for a while to do some dramatic doppelgänger poses.

Image

Sorry about the camera/setup. I'm not used to having a contribution to make! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I wasn't sure what would be relevant in reviewing a repaint. Thanks for reading!
