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.
