Gundam Age television series was aired around the period when Unicorn Gundam OVA was released. Gundam Age kind of got beaten down. However IMHO, this under-rated anime had plot that kept audiences going although it started slow paced. At least, I understand this anime stretched over 3-pilot-generations better 'G Reconguista'.

Ultimately, Gundam Age aimed to nurture young audience to liking Gundam hence Bandai introduced 1/100 scale figure of the main suit, Gundam AGE-1. The AGE-1 normal be disassembled allowing you to swap legs and arms with other suits from the Gage-ing Builder series. It also comes with its signature shield, beam rifle, and a Gage-ing card. It's kinda nice if you don't mind having too many visible screws and lacked of proportionality. 

After all, it's for playing and be treated like an action figure. Bandai Namco added more entertainment with BG (Gage-ing Builder), which carry 'Gage-ing Chip' circuitry which, when scanned by the Gage-ing Link system, allow models and figures alike to compete on the same field. Using devices like the free-play Gage-ing Battle Base kiosk, planned for installation at arcades and selective hobby shops. Mainly for domestic market. I only saw them locally at Gunpla Expo and Toy'R'Us when the toy line was newly launched.

Bandai sure know how to satisfy the craving of mecha who wants the action and not the assembling of model kits. Though the scale ain't really big. The Damashii or call it Tamashii meaning 'Spirit' stand at average height if a 1/144 Gunpla, rather 12cm. It's a cool released on this under-rated mecha anime 'Full Metal Panic!'. In this anime, the robot are termed as Arm-Slave and Arbalest is the most up-to-date piloted by the male protagonist, Sousuke Sagara.

Packaging is typical of Robot Spirit Damashii, in slim and space saving box with clear window showing most of the accessories. Bandai is generous with an assortment of accessories from anti-tank dagger, monocular cutter, shotgun, optional hand parts, extra face with knife on its mouth and Lambda drive parts. 

I would say the sculpt of the figure is sharp, not to inform that some yellow paints were inconsistent. Nevertheless the figure is relatively decent for a reasonable price. Definitely a cool release for the fun factor and action pose capability. No problem from bending to kneeling position. Even the shotgun has gimmick like moveable pump slide that moved back and forth and adjustable recoil shoulder rest.

"Dom Tropen" was deployed mainly at Africa Front, specialized and re-designed MS with the goal of optimum operation in desert environment. They are featured in UC0083, as after OYW, a small remainder were operated by the Principality of Zeon remnants. Dom Tropen Sand Brown MS 09F is a mass production MS that appeared in "Mobile Suit Gundam 0083". These Principality of Zeon remnants assisted the hijacked Gundam GP02, escaped to space from Africa. 

It was modified to more aerodynamic shape and the maintenance of improving intake filter leg thermonuclear jet hover to counter earth's gravitation pull to react better to desert surface. In addition, the compatibility of equipment has been thoroughly improved as these sand hover units desert obtained efficiently surface effects over normal Dom system unit. In addition to the dust filter physical filters, an electromagnetic induction or a centrifugal separation mechanism is incorporated to prevent contamination of large and small dust can proof equipment. 

Head unit basic structure is close to Rick Dom Ⅱ, rather than Dom, sub-sensor is equipped with top of the head Improved type was changed to a magazine type the bullet-feed method. Also, disposable rocket launcher, which is widely used in the late his one-year war. However even with automatic tracking device, it is still very difficult for the rocket launch to hit a moving target. Weapon for hand-to-hand combat is the heat saber. Saber portion made up of generation device to change the energy into heat with high efficiency.
