Review by JoshB
RX-77 Guncannon & RX-75 Guntank are two of the earliest prototypes of
the Earth Federation Mobile Suits. Their strong armor and heavy fire power
gives them excellent medium and long-range artillery support.
The Guntank and Guncannon come in a nice window box with a plastic tray. No
parts need to be assembled, and all accessories are easily accessible. No twist
ties are used to secure the product.
Included in the package is:
- 2 core fighters
- Vulcan guns and cannons for Guncannon
- Beam Rifle
- Cannons for Guntank
Both Guncannon and Guntank separate at the waist to reveal a compartment to
hold the transformable core fighter. It is really difficult to separate the
halves. There appears to be buttons on either side of the waist to release
it, but I couldn't get it to work. It's also a little tricky to
get the 2 halves back together with the core fighter, because it has to line
up just right. Maybe I'm just old.
The figures themselves are pretty cool. The Guntank features working
tank treads, articulated arms and moveable cannons. Guncannon features
switchable shoulder weapons, a beam rifle, articulated arms, legs and head.
Guncannon and Guntank are designed to accept each others parts, so you can
make up new combinations, such as Cantank and Tanknon. You can also combine
parts from other SD Gundam figures for even more fun.
These toys are solid, well built and great looking. My only complaint is the
difficulty in combining the top and bottom halves. I'm glad that they
are including the old-school Gundam designs in the SD line.
