Mobile Suit Gundam Big Size MSN-02 Zeong Soft Vinyl Figure













It looks like I'm getting more prize items in my collection and this time is an awesome figure that captures Zeong in stunning detail on a prefabricated / prepainted figure. Anyway, I got this at a local toy shop for a decent price and I am thinking that it would make a good prop for my MG Gundam RX-78-2(An immediate adversary). Could be better if I manage to add some panel lines to this Mobile Suit Gundam, Banpresto released big size soft vinyl figure MSN-02 Zeong in the early years of 2009.

Each of the Zeong's forearms are in essence powerful mega particle guns with five barrels each built into the fingers. There are two fire-linked mega particle guns mounted on the waist as painted in purple. Mounted in the head of the mobile suit, the mouth is a single mega particle gun.

For those not familiar with Gundam baddies, Zeong is a prototype mobile suit appearing in the anime Mobile Suit Gundam. Developed by the Principality of Zeon at the A Baoa Qu space fortress during the One Year War, it was built for Newtype pilots and was first piloted by the "Red Comet" Char Aznable. I guess at that point of time, Zeon didn't have the time to fit the legs all in all Zeong does need the legs in space. Just give it all the thrusters on the skirt that has the shape of a love heart from the rear... hmm interesting design. 

 It comes in pre-painted parts that can be easily popped in to complete the 14 cm display piece. The size is very close to 1/100 scale MG model kit. Features basic swivel joints on its neck and shoulders which give the figure more expressions during photography. The toy appears accurate to the artwork on the box art, weighs rather light and very durable with flexible head antenna. The paint works is quite remarkable with red, yellow, purple, green and green... sharply painted on the base grey and blue material.
