Model Building: Bandai Danball Seki LBX-14 Lucifer Model Kit

9 12 2012

This is one of those “what the hell” kind of buys. I was browsing through eBay looking for Gundam Markers and was recommended this kit from Bandai. I have no idea what this kit is based on but it looked really interesting. It comes with instructions for assembly, a few runners with all the parts (just like with Gundam¬† parts),¬† and a small sticker sheet.

Before I started to build it, I repainted the yellow parts which was in a standard Gundam yellow to much metallic looking gold. Total build time was about 30 minutes. Amazingly easy and fun.Danball Senki LBX-14 Lucifer 02

The design is just amazing. There’s nice dark angelic feel to the design. The design style reminds me of Mega Man X. The articulation is very much equal to a moderen day High Grade Gundam Kit so you can really pose him anyway you want.

His weapon is a clear plastic purple sword. The material is very solid and not cheap.

For defense he has a warrior style shield.

He also sports clear purple plastic wings that are adjustable in position. You can have them lowered for cape kind of look or up high for flight.

This is really based for the Pokemon kid demographic and priced under $20 each. I scanned through some of the other kits in the series after finishing off this kit and I have to say this is one model kit series I may consider diving back into. If you want to try out something new for your model building robot needs, give this series a try.
