All four collectible figures include LED lights and each Mobile Suits’ signature weapons as attachable accessories, such as the RX-78-2 Gundam figure’s Beam Sabre or rifle (depending on which version fans choose), and the MS-06S Zaku II’s rifle or Heat Hawk for close-quarters combat.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: These are pretty sweet and something I’d likely look into purchasing because not only is there a nice variety of figures but the price point is very nice. Nowadays you find the “Star Wars” and assorted Marvel figures running you upwards of $20 and while that’s perfectly fine, sometimes you need to monitor that credit card use. Though I don’t own any Gundam things at the moment, I am a big fan of giant robots and can proudly age myself by saying that I owned a few of the giant Shogun Warriors figures. That being said, I hope that this continues the practice of more awesome Bandai items being made available here in the states. If I can judge what I usually see at Toy Fair, they have a lot of awesome that collectors on this side of the pond would surely enjoy but that’s all I have to say about this. What do you fellow geek-minded collectors think about this news and the provided visuals? Chime in down below and I will see you again soon. Stay safe out there.
