agreed

I bought it, sold it, bought the two other versions...sold them...and then saw this guy again real cheap and bought. he has all the issues discussed. However, he looks cool and similar to the BX-01 Yamato...it does fall apart when touched but looks cool displayed. A flightpose stand helps allot...

either way nice review and cool seeing such an old SOC on the front page.

Thanks for the review, I

Thanks for the review, I always thought this was a mysterious release because no one seemed to want to review it although many people owned it.

Cheers!

Yes, the gaiking is a little

Yes, the gaiking is a little piece of crap, and yes, the knee spikes are so prone to popping off that I keep them in the box. I still think it's a stunning rendition of Daiku and I'll keep it forever, unless I have to sell it for food. The accessories are cool and the little details like the tank treads are a delight.

I have GX-05 and GX-05R and I

I have GX-05 and GX-05R and I love them both, sure it's not the most stable of toys plus I curse Bandai for not including a stand that could support Daiku Maryu especially with the Miracle Drills attached but it's still the best looking Daiku figure ever made. Once you get past the tiny Gaiking and accept your buying a Daiku Maru toy with a Gaiking accessory then you'll appreciate it more, I do hope we get an updated figure since this was only the 5th release in a line that has well over 60 releases (if you include re-colors, re-designs, special editions etc.) since the progress in design from those first SOC's to the ones released today is stunning.
