My review of the Real Grade Gundam Astraea.
This is a P-Bandai conversion kit for the RG Gundam Exia.
Overall, this is a nice conversion kit for the Exia. The new parts have more of an experimental, industrial feel to them and along with the new accessories, this makes for a pretty good conversion kit.
Articulation will be much the same as the RG Exia so if you want to know more please check out my prior review on the RG Gundam Exia – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8mzmYx7OBc
Since this kit requires a full RG Exia, you still get all the extras from the Exia in addition to the new gear for the Astraea.
The kit retails for 1800 yen (~$16) although it’s unlikely you can find one for that price since it’s P-Bandai. You also have to take into consideration that you need an RG Exia kit as well (2500 yen) to make this. For some, this may be more of a hassle than necessary for such a niche Gundam. The older HG versions are more widely available if one desires the Astraea without going the RG route.
Overall this is a good kit and I like the look and the new extras. Recommended if you can find one for a good price. These were reprinted this year (2017) so it’s still possible to find these for now.
