Review by JoshB
When I first saw these Front Mission Trading Arts figures, I thought they were chunks of non-poseable gashapon. Much to my surprise, these are fully articulated action figures!
Zenith comes from the video game series “Front Mission”. I’ve never played the game, but from what I can tell the mechs in this Trading Arts + line have appeared in various front mission games over the years, the latest being Front Mission 5.
Each figure is about 3 inches tall and features a full range of articulation. The detail at this size is astounding. Each little joint is fully moveable and you can achieve a wide variety of poses.
Despite the small size, each figure manages to come with interchangeable accessories. Zenith comes with a gun (with attached fist), shield, shoulder cannon and back assembly. The parts use a similar connection point, so you can mix and match parts from other mecha in the line. Each toy has a few different connection points, so you can choose where on the character you want the accessories attached.
The only flaw I found with this toy is that the connection on the knees is a bit loose on mine. Nothing show-stopping, but something to be aware of.
Front Mission Trading Arts + are available from select retailers, distributed by Diamond Comics Distributors.
