Bandai is hopping onto the wagon of 6" action figures, similarly to their Dragonball Star Series, following Hasbro highly successful Star Wars and Marvel Legend series. The first wave hitting stores is none other then the original Gundam RX-78-2, certainly my favourite and most iconic Gundam.
In comparison to the past MSIA (Mobile Suit In Action) figurine line, this upsized Gundam action figure appears a lot easier to handle even with my adult hands. Lolz... Though lacking in articulation when compared to the Robot Spirit toyline, Gundam Universal figures are definitely more robust and durable. In fact, I like the extendable thigh feature that allows a wider range of leg motion.
This action figure is not fanciful and Bandai only provides the basic accessories such as the shield, beam rifle and beam saber. Not forgetting an attachment compatible to Gunpla base stand for more dramatic posing. The hands available include a pair of clutch fist, rifle grabbing hand and saber holding hand.
The joints are tight and figure is very toyetic. Some other plus points includes good colour separations that's sharp and neat. The panel lines are deep and sharp hence provided potential of further enhancing the ecstatic with addition touch up.
