HG 1/144 Adele Diva Color
Probably the most underrated AGE HG releases, Adele is superior on its own.
This is the mass-produced Mobile Suit based on Gundam AGE-1. In fact, the runners for assembling Adele are taken from AGE-1 runners (most notably from runner B). The design is simple yet cool for a mass produced MS. Somehow I prefer visor face MS rather than Gundam face in terms of realism. This simplicity is backed up with great articulation, perfect gimmicks, and interchangeable parts with AGE-1 Titus or Spallow. And Bandai did a great job in molding with less stickers, easy snap-fit, and it is a fun experience building this HG. I wonder if Bandai will ever release its MG counterparts, or at least its NG 1/100.
I didn’t apply marking seal (no 1 or 2) on purpose considering I just only have one Adele so far. And I chose Diva’s color over original because I like this color choice. Federation color is just meh and probably contributed Adele to become one of the most underrated MS in Gundam universe. But still this is fantastic gunpla to build. I highly recommend this HG release. Whether Federation color or Diva color is actually depend on your taste, if you can, grab both. Kudos to the MS designer making this Adele so simple yet elegant and superior on its league. Now I understand why some gunpla builders prefer mass-produced MS, because it’s so fun to build.
