Looking back at my posts during the early days of blogging, the content and pics were rather obnoxious. In order to serve you better, apart from reviewing new toys, it's also a continuous process for me to do some facelifts to my old postings, like this Mega Size Shining Gundam which I had bought back in year 2008. The toy was a U.S released, therefore it was scarce in Asia region.
This is the kind of toy that will catch anyone's attention when they visit my house. Standing 13" and towering most of my other toys. Easy to handle and poseable with little problem executing its signature melee attack 'Shining Finger!'. It has a attachable hatch pod that could be engaged to the back of Shining Gundam. The saber handles can be drawn from both sides of the skirt like a samurai. A strong characteristic for a Gundam representing Neo Japan in the anime series 'G Gundam'.
Some interesting gimmicks of the toy that enable Mega Size Shining Gundam to switch into Super mode would be the adjustable spikes on the head, plus a face change. The shoulder armours lifted up to reveal the chrome valves, pop up action on both forearms and covers on the legs opened outwards to expose the additional thrusters and finally flipping back the ankle guards.
