The Armored Personnel Unit (APU) is a hydraulic power battle suit designed for combat and defense for Zion. Its main weaponry is two rapid-fire cannons attached to the suit’s arms. The APU was first seen in The Matrix Reloaded with more extensive use in The Matrix Revolutions. The APU figure by Threezero features a highly detailed paint application and mechanical design based on official images from the films with realistic metal springs and rubber hoses used throughout the figure’s arms and legs to portray the design in the Matrix films. Thefully articulated pilot figure includes detailed fabric
clothing and can be positioned to fit inside the cockpit, where he would operate the machine. In addition, both arm cannons have a light-up LED feature, and the figure includes two ammo case accessories. The Threezero exclusive deluxe box set includes the APU Ammo Loader (with two additional ammo cases) as well as an articulated ground crew figure featuring the same attention to detail and design as the APU pilot. The Ammo Loader’s platform can be manually extended to depict its use seen in the films.
