XM-02 Den'an Gei
Review by JoshB
The Robot Spirits XM-02 Den'an Gei mobile suit comes from the 1991 anime film Mobile Suit Gundam F91.
In the series, the XM-02 is manufactured by Crossbone Vanguard, aka the “enemy” of the Earth Federation Forces. This unit was the first mobile suit produced by Crossbone Vanguard, and was based off of the XM-01 Den’an Zon.
Everything that the XM-01 had going for it, the XM-02’s got it better. Bigger engines, bulkier armor, bigger shield.
You can see the logical design steps from one to the other. The two figures complement each other very well.
Accessories include multiple variant hands, shield, backpack, beam saber and beam rifle.
This version of the Mobile Suit does not have the shot lancer weapon, instead opting for more on-board armaments such as Rocket Propelled Grenades on the shoulder and Vulcan cannons in the head.
The Beam Rifle can be held with both hands. The gun is sharply detailed, but lacking any paint apps.
The shield mounts to the left arm, and is on a ball joint so it can rotate into several positions. Like the XM-01, the shield is made out of a very thin plastic material.
One beam saber is included.
Articulation is the standard level of awesomeness.
While no stand is included, an adapter is included for use with the Tamashii Stand system.
Everything is tight. It’s just a great piece. Like the XM-01.
