Mobile Suit Gundam MOBILE SUIT ENSEMBLE 02 10Pack BOX

Mobile Suit Gundam MOBILE SUIT ENSEMBLE 02 10Pack BOX

4  Tuesday 05 December, 2017
by Charles  United States  

This set includes 10 pieces of these gashapon figures. I bought this set for the 00 Gundam and the 00 Raiser. I got lucky and ended up with 2 sets of each of those.

The actual construction process is very simple. There's a very basic instruction included inside each box, but it's not specific for the figure since the general design of each of these are the same. The connection parts are the same for each figure.

Just be warned that some parts might be bent when you open it but that's how all gashapon figures are. You can heat it up with warm water to make the part more pliable, straighten it out, and then let it cool.

Articulation on the elbows and the knees are just 1 point, but they get the job done.

The accessories are all compatible with the other figures so you can make your own customized, kit-bash version.

Overall, I think this is a pretty good purchase; especially if you're a fan of any of these mobile suits.

They tend to go out of stock and discontinued so if you want these, you should hurry up and buy it.

Oh and another thing. The box each figure comes in is a generic picture so you don't actually know which gashapon figure it is until you actually open up the individual boxes.


Gundam Build Fighters - Gundam Fenice Rinascita (MG)

This guy has all the great articulation as the MG Wing Gundam (TV Version) since it is based off of that kit. Yet it somehow manages to make it look even better with the significantly stylized version from the Build Fighters series!

A lot of the runners are the same with some sections that were modified to the Fenice Rinascita's designs.

It also comes with a new Action Base for 1/100 scale GunPla kits that does not require any screws like the Action Base 1 display stands. I hope these new display bases are sold separately later.

Overall, this is an awesome MG and a great addition to your Build Fighters collection. I hope to see a MG release for the Wing Fenice as well. Although there's a new MG Fenice Rinascita Alba Ver coming soon as a Premium Bandai release. Hopefully Plamoya will carry that one soon at a good price.

This model kit has all of the great articulation and details featured on the original Age-2 Normal HG.

However, Bandai gave it a premium color treatment for the SP Ver (Special Forces) that we saw briefly in Gundam Age.

This is really for the hardcore fans, and definitely worth it in your collection.


Gundam Expansion Set for MG RX-78-2 Gundam Ver.3.0

Gundam Expansion Set for MG RX-78-2 Gundam Ver.3.0

This is an essential add on set for the MG Gundam 3.0. It's a bit annoying that the beam javelin and hammer were not included with the 3.0 like the 2.0, but to make up for it, you get an extra bazooka and the yellow LED unit.

It's definitely worth it.

Also, an improvement over the 2.0's beam javelin is that the beam effect parts are in clear pink. The 2.0 version was just clear and you had to paint it yourself.

And in case anyone has the 1.5, OYW ver, or 2.0 version.. The weapons are compatible with the hands included with these.

This guy is awesome! If you are a fan of the RX-78-2, this is currently the best version you can get!

It has mostly the same parts of the version 2.0, but Bandai has made some minor detail changes to reflect a similar style they used with the Real Grade version through the multi-tone style design.

The only bad thing is that it doesn't come with the extra weapons that the 2.0 has, but Bandai sells that as a P-Bandai "Expansion Set".

This suit is the perfect choice for the more hardcore Gundam Seed fans! This is the perfect companion to go with the MG Destiny!

Generally speaking, this guy is the same as the Master Grade Destiny Gundam. It's unfortunately not the "Extreme Blast Mode" version so the Wings of Light do not come with this kit and there are no chrome/mechi plated parts.

But what we do get is the same great articulation and color separation that we got with the MG Destiny (standard version) but in Heine Westenfluss's signature orange color scheme.

Fortunately, this comes with the same detailed display base as the MG Destiny Gundam (standard version) has, but it's in orange. Also, the clear, pink beam effect pieces for the weapons have been changed to clear, orange to go with the color scheme of Heine's orange signature color.


So as with the MG Destiny, articulation, the inner frames, weapons and accessories, and color separation has been faithfully recreated in Master Grade form. But, as mentioned, for this version it is in a bright orange color scheme.

If you have the money and interest in this guy, I would definitely recommend it; especially if you have the MG Destiny Gundam.

-- Side Notes --
This guy's model number is known as X42S - REVOLUTION, which is a reference to the CD for the group TM-Revolution since their singer, Takanori Nishikawa, is also the voice actor for Heine Westenfluss in the anime.

There was released at GunPla EXPO so it is a rare kit. There is also a RG version released at GunPla EXPO as well as an HG.

The HG ver. comes with an orange Wings of Light since the regular version of the HG came with it.
