Few suits mark a before and after once they're released. The Exia is one of those.
Every model released under the Perfect Grade line comes with innovation that usually ends trickling down to other series and becomes a standard from that point onwards.
When the Exia was initially announced most people’s fears were that the iconic GN Drive would not be properly adapted but BANDAI delivered.
The Perfect Grade Exia features an impressive chest with the centerpiece being the drive itself and part of the back. The plastic on this kit feels comparatively heavy due to the stress it needs to be able to handle in order to pose such a svelte model while ensuring the details are all there thanks to the part separation. The shoulders are cleanly divided giving plenty of natural shadows to pieces around them while the legs become a rock-solid foundation which ends up being a necessity once the suit is outfitted with it’s melee-focused heavy weaponry, including three different types of GN blades.
Additionally, this model kit was one of the first to be featured as having a Lighting Mode and should you want, the instructions also include how to install a LED unit (Not included) for you to take advantage of all the see-through bits the model features, lighting every part of it to your taste.
