Aura Battler Dunbine
Review by JoshB
Along with Mobile Suit in Action and Super Robot in Action, Bandai also released Aura Battler in Action. This line was the same size and feel as the other lines, but was restricted to characters from Aura Battler Dunbine.
The good news is that Dunbine is actually a nicely sculpted figure. Where the Super Robots were lacking detail, Dunbine has fantastic paint apps and great articulation.
Still, it's sort of a gummy mess.
The plastic on mine has not aged well, and has begun to feel sticky.
The sword is soft PVC and does not keep its shape. It can store in the removable sheath on the backpack, which is nice.
Articulation is good, but the limbs get loose easily.
The Shot Rocket weapon attaches to the left arm.
The cockpit opens up with a unique 3-panel translucent door. Sadly, no pilot figure is included.
The back booster section lifts up to reveal articulated translucent wings.
This would have been a great piece had they used better plastic and tighter joints. The upcoming Robot Spirits should hopefully rectify that.
