Another fabulous post about a Gundam Fix Figuration figure. I hate to say, it will probably be the last one of this figure group. It never ceases to amaze me the detail of these figures, but at the opposite end is the fragility of them. I got this second hand off of eBay as his kid didn't want it. I did ask, so have to assume he never know it had a cracked shoulder. Good news is that it does hold up well, but due to the functionality of it, I can't really super glue it for repair.
Nuff said on that subject, lets get to the review.
This is for GFF #0004 which is also called G-ARMOR. It is a nice combo pack featuring both a RX-78 and G-Fighter. I got this as I loved the extras and multiple configurations. It was also one that I got specifically for my son to help me with. He loves assembling these and is very helpful when I need a second pair of hand or eyes. In fact, I couldn't figure out a part to remove and he actually found it and how to do it.
The RX-78 is very nicely detailed and the articulation is simple. It would be fine as a stand alone figure by itself. When you ad the beam rifle and the double shields, it really comes to life. I am reading Mobile Suit Gundam - The Origin manga and up to volume 3. It was so cool making this as I could image it was me - lol - sorry, fanboy moment.
My son really liked the G-Armor mode as you get twin cannons and it rolls on tank treads. Well, not really roll as the treads are glued to the wheels. I didn't take shots of all the transformations, but here is what we did take for your pleasure. The G-Bull has issues with the shield being held in place on the one arm, so that wasn't included in my shots. Here are the rest with the RX-78 transformed.
What do you think of this one?
Is it one you would want to add to your collection?
