MSZ-010-AS ZZ Gundam Locust Plague
Gundam Locust Plague serie was created with the same concept of the plague in the Old Testament: having on an unstoppable legion of destroyer machines that rise to the ground everything, cities and the humankind itself. The movement asset was inspired to a locust. The first serialization was composed of 135 units, and firstly adopted in the "Seven Rivers War". They leave only dust behind...
This GK kit belongs to a more mechanic profile, less "quantic". It mimics the life, like a giant insect. In nature, insect's bright colours are used as communication source, saying "I'm here" or sometimes it means "look at me, I'm really dangerous, don't approach me too much or you'll be in trouble...". This is the reason why Gundam Locust Plague could have bright colours in my imagination: to create a "cloud of colours" composed of all the members of the serie, like a huge single insect, and with the effrontery to affirm "I'm gone to destroy you ". I didn't have the time to find the plastic joints, I used little wooden balls to attach the arms to the breast and the hands to the arms. For the knees, I needed bigger joints to sustain the entire weight, and unfortunately the touch points were completely out of the perpendicular axis. I adopted plastic balls (they were parts of an hair clip) drilled with an angle of 100° to sustain everything. In the backpack, a metal cannon made of electric connectors has been located. The first version of the cannon was longer (the double), but it unbalanced the stability being in the highest position, so it was reduced to the half. On both sides of the cannon I added two engines from a very old plastic kit, Gundam F91.
All the armour is decorated with golden little balls (about 180) and customized with selfmade decalcomanies.
I hope you enjoy it!
