I have been meaning to write up this entry for quite some time, and with the recent reissue of these two miniatures in the Selection V set I figured I'd get this out of the way before posting up that review. This will be a closer look into two of the oddities of the Converge line, the two modular combat vehicles known as the G-Bull and the G-Sky. In the Gundam lore these craft are support units for the original RX-78-2 Gundam and can also combine with it.
The two figures were originally covered in the reviews for Converge 11 and Converge 12 respectively.
|Converge 68: G-Bull (Converge 11, released in June 2013).|
|Converge 74: G-Sky (Converge 12, released in October 2013).|
The idea here is, to take the parts of which the G-Bull and the G-Sky are comprised, and rebuild them into the G-Fighter module. As I had no manual to follow while doing this, this took some fiddling about and random trial and error. Here we have the various parts with which to do the work:
Below you can see my first attempt to put together the G-Fighter. To the left is the FWUO G-Fighter which served as my prototype. It turned out a really simple and clean layout, very faithful to the larger model. However, it wasn't until a while later that I actually came across an official image of what the Converge G-Fighter was supposed to look like.

Whichever version of the G-Fighter you prefer to build, it does its part well and can be displayed without coming across as a mere gimmick. So much so, that I would consider using a second pair of figures to be able to display the G-Fighter together with the G-Bull and G-Sky simultaneously.
