Bandai 1/144 HGCE ZGMF-X19A Infinite Justice Gundam

The ZGMF-X19A Infinite Justice Gundam is a mobile suit featured in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny and is piloted by Athrun Zala.

It is developed to incorporate ZAFT’s Variable Phase-Shift Armor and adjustments were made to reflect Athrun Zala’s combat data, practically making the Justice Gundam his dedicated mobile suit. Improvement such as enhanced close combat capability by equipping with a number of unique weapons such as leg beam blades and a carrier beam shield that has a beam shield, a beam boomerang and a grapple stinger.

The Infinite Justice Gundam carries on its back a flight unit that can be deployed as a separate support unit/sub-flight unit Fatum-01. This Fatum-01 is an improved version with higher overall performance, and is armed with a pair of beam cannons and several beam blades.

The Infinite Justice Gundam is design to operate alongside another mobile suit, in this case, the Strike Freedom and is stationed on board the warship Eternal. Like the ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam, the Justice Gundam is also equipped with Neutron Jammer Canceller, Hyper-Deuterion Engine, and has joints as well as inner frame made of PS armour materials.

The Hyper-Deuterion Engine is a new type of nuclear reactor and due to its massive output; the Justice Gundam has extremely high mobility and manoeuvrability. Meanwhile, the phase-shifting of its joints and inner frame as a result of the PS armour materials give them strength and near human flexibility while also enhancing the suit’s combat abilities. Additionally, the Justice Gundam is able to discharge excess residual energy within the body through the joints’ glowing effect, which is silver instead of Strike Freedom’s gold (which I painted it bronze…my bad!).

The High Grade Cosmic Era (HGCE) ZGMF-X19A Infinite Justice Gundam is a Bandai 1/144 scale kit released in 2020. It is relatively new kit and the HG Dagger L shares some of the similar joint system with the Justice Gundam. Also as a new kit, poly caps are not used but instead a series of spigot joints or hinges are used instead. My personal opinion is that you will need to snip off some of the tabs to help pushing pieces together if you decide to paint with primer and a top coat; the extra thickness of paint will restrict the pieces coming together.

$1.00

The base price of this kit is not cheap compared to other kit; it is retail at about ¥2,200. Whereas the Grand-daddy HGUC RX-78-2 Gundam (Revive) is ¥1,000; but to be honest the Justice Gundam comes with more plastic such as Fatum-01 (back flight unit), Beam sabre x 2, Beam rifle, Beam shield, Grapple Stinger (with wire), beam boomerang, “Griffon” beam blade (beam blade equipped between knees and foot), “Griffon 2” beam blade (mounted on the wings of the back unit).

The parts separation (in my humble opinion) is also one of the best in HG class. I am able to paint most of the parts separately and in different colours so if I choose. Masking is also minimal since most to the parts where colour separation are required are already separated.

Hence I was able to custom my Justice Gundam into a Neo Roanoke Windam Custom, which is a unique purple and neon green accent colour scheme. I basically just swapped the head with of the Justice Gundam with a Windam head unit and used the Windam beam rifle. I am very happy how the custom turns out; it really looks more like an Ace Mobile Suit. Please check out my other projects such as Windam customised to look like Re-Gz Custom and my L-Dagger customised with Buster Gundam livery.

The articulation are also considered “modern” such as the back skirt armour features additional peg holes to allow the hip joints to be locked in 2 different positions to allow more dynamic poses. Otherwise, most are basic movement without the use of polycaps.
