DIY: Decorative Battle Mech (Made With White Plastic Trash)
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I GIVE YOU… MY DECORATIVE BATTLE MECH!
And it’s poseable! :-)
Modellista chose Char Aznable, a fictional character from the Gundam franchise, as its inspiration for the re-styling of the new compact hatchback.
After fitting the car with an aero package consisting of a deep front apron with LED daytime lights, hood vents, rocker panels, a roof spoiler and a new rear bumper with a diffuser and quad tailpipes, Modellista then applied a foil wrap in red for the body and in carbon fiber for the roof.
The Auris Char Aznable rides on a set of black 18-inch alloy wheels and also features changes inside, including red accents on the dashboard, steering wheel hub and gear shifter.
The only mechanical upgrades made to the car are the sports exhaust system and a lower and stiffer suspension.
Autobots and Decepticons move over because there’s a new Japanese franchise about cars transforming into robots and it’s named Chō Soku Henkei Gyrozetter.
Square Enix first launched an arcade game of the transformers-like warrior cars this past summer and now plans to release an animated film in Japan towards the end of fall.
The Japanese company has already secured the rights for several cars from local manufactures including Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota.
Expect more car brands and models to be added to the series.
