DX GP-01 Gundam
Review by JoshB
The full name of this Gundam toy is actually the DX Transforming Gundam GP01-fb. It comes from the Gundam series "0083: Stardust Memory".
This is one of the shining stars of Bandai's DX Mobile Suit in Action line.
Everything you could want in a Gundam toy, this one has it. Articulation, gimmicks, transformation, accessories - you name it. The only thing missing is some kind of light-up action, but we can forgive that.
This figure can be separated with three parts and combine back to Gundam again. These three parts are
- "A-part"(Upper torso),
- "Core block"(Cockpit)
Core block can also transform into "Core Fighter II"
Equipment set includes, a beam rifle, beam saber, and shield. There is some assembly of these accessories required.
There are some really great details here. You can remove the leg armor to see the inner skeleton, open up the cockpit, and even activate shoulder boosters by lifting up a flap.
This is a big toy - at 1/60 scale you get 11 inches of solid plastic.
