This is the last few Gundam Chogokins before Bandai decided to conceal the metal beneath plastic to start the toyline of GFF (Gundam Fix Figuration) metal composite. The change is probably due to complaints of exposed metal carbonized and brittle metal joints.
This Metal Material Model Strike Gundam GAT-X105 is presented in a typical Gundam Chogokin artwork with naval blue background, leaving a small window in-front for collectors to take a glimpse of the head sculpt and metal exo-skeleton. Weapons and armor parts are arrangement neatly on the plastic blister inserts, so you will need some time and effort to complete the Gundam. Not to worry cos the parts snapped nicely and won't dropped easily even when you moved the joints.
The set has got all the basic armaments the Strike Gundam needs from beam rifle, beam sabers, shield as well as those foldable daggers that can be stored at the side pockets. Beam sabers on the hand, can be fixed to the Aile Pack- AQM/E-X01. With these accessories, Strike Gundam is now Aile Strike Gundam with mobility in the air! There's a lot of metal so you can rest assured that your investment worthwhile. In fact the value this premium Chogokin Strike Gundam had appreciated in terms of market value. The scale of the toy is near 1/100, approximately 9" and stand steadily. Articulation are limited after the armour were donned, however there shouldn't be much problem posing simple stances.
