I always forget that we got a Zaku in this toyline. I really need to get one of these for my own Zaku collection as well. This thing is so ridiculous and I love it. Awesome review.

In spite of some of the

In spite of some of the wilder 0079 Zeon designs like the Acguy and Gaw, the Zaku has always been one of my least favorite of the staple MSs (with the exception of perhaps the Zaku III and the ZAKU Warrior/Phantom from "SEED"). It took me a while to warm up to the Dom, but I liked the Gelgoog and Z'Gok more.

With that said, I'm impressed that you can pack all the accessories on like this and retain such excellent articulation for a pre-assembled and -painted figure (toy?) that costs less than $50!

Forgive my ignorance, please, but what are those small universal joint-looking accessories hanging from the back of its skirt armor? Grenades?

Crackers!

Yes, they're a type of grenade, if I recall right they're called "Cracker" grenades. I think they have several explosive devices around a central hub; when thrown, the explosives fly off the hub in all directions.

That looks like an awesome figure, and just goes to prove - for mecha fans, you can never have too many guns!

Ohh... so THAT's what a Cracker looks like! I've been playing SD Gundam Capsule Fighter (NA) for almost two months, and I haven't been able to find a picture of them.

"Oops! Google Chrome could not find mahq.net"

Hmm... that's happening a bit too much for my tastes these days. Can't get to Kumby.com either, and that really pisses me off now that I've started watching "Gundam OO".

I just want to point out for Ben's sanity that he put all of the accessories into a bulleted list right under the third picture.

Anime accurate look

This particular figure of the Zaku II seems to be going for a more anime accurate look then the Zaku usually gets through various model kits and what not. While I don't think it's as good the more modern look, I am glad to see that Bandai's at least putting it out there so we no longer have to rely on an old high grade kit if we want that look. That aside, the articulation on this thing looks amazing, and it has all the Zaku accessories, something that's rather rare. I think you just convinced me to go out there and buy this thing.

*Sigh* They always keep

*Sigh* They always keep finding ways to make me buy more Zakus. I'm happy with the Zauks I have! Until I see something like this. Fantastic. Another Zaku it is. You win, Bandai.

Wow ! He comes with enough

Wow ! He comes with enough weapons to take out a small army of GMs... only to be obliterated by the RX-78.

Char's zaku

I really really wanted this one but decided tow wait for the red one. It's cool to see it next to RX 78. And it's 1/144.

I've never been able to

I've never been able to 'get-into' the Gundam aesthetic, but that's one cool toy you've got there. I might have to investigate...
