Hey guys, it's your favorite career coach here to talk about something a little different: Bandai Hobby Gundam Kimaris Trooper "Gundam IBO" Building Kit (1/100 Scale). Now, I know what you're thinking: "What does a career coach know about building model kits?" Well, let me tell you, after experiencing being laid off in the past, I found that building model kits was a great way to practice self-care and keep my mind occupied. And the Kimaris Trooper Gundam did not disappoint.

First of all, the kit itself is highly detailed and well-made. The proportions and details in the head are spot-on, and I was impressed with the opening chest hatches. Plus, the transformation to the hovering Trooper Form was a fun challenge to recreate. I especially liked the special hand for positioning the massive Destroyer Lance (which, by the way, is an absolute unit). The shield and saber were also nice additions.

In terms of who this kit would be a good fit for, I would say it's great for both Gundam fans and model kit enthusiasts. If you're an experienced builder, you'll appreciate the level of detail and the challenge of the transformation. If you're new to building, it's still doable, but you might want to start with something a bit easier first.

Now, let's get to the pro con list:

- Highly detailed and well-made
- Fun transformation to the Trooper Form
- Special hand for positioning the Destroyer Lance
- Shield and saber included

- A bit pricey at $77.44
- Color scheme might not be for everyone (but that's subjective)

Overall, I had a great time building the Kimaris Trooper Gundam, and I think it's a worthwhile investment if you're a fan of the Gundam series or model kits in general. Plus, as someone who knows the importance of self-care, I can say that building model kits is a great way to take your mind off things and practice mindfulness. So go ahead, treat yourself to a little me-time and build yourself a Gundam.

Bottom line:
I give the Bandai Hobby Gundam Kimaris Trooper "Gundam IBO" Building Kit (1/100 Scale) an 8 out of 10. It's a bit pricey, but the level of detail and fun transformation make it worth it. Plus, building model kits is a great form of self-care.
