PTX-EX Exbein

Great Review

I always liked the design of the Exbein, but found the price too expensive for such a small mecha. Thankfully HLJ place these on sale and I jumped in.

Your review shows the strengths and weaknesses that this toy has in design, painting and accessories. Indeed the weapon attachments hold a lot better on the hips than the arms, I fixed this problem using the classic nail polish trick, and now the beam sabers holster holds up pretty well on the left arm.

I have been trying to pose the Exbein with all of his weapons, but found out it was not possible because they get in the way of each other. This is quite noticeable with the big gun, when it is placed on the arm there is no room to connect any of the other weapons to that same arm. Also most of these optional parts cannot be placed, especially on the hips, when the backpack thrusters are connected.

It has an awesome design and the color is quite unique, setting him apart from other robots. Is one of my all time favorite mecha.

Surely, the Exbein is one of

Surely, the Exbein is one of the best designs of the SRW The Inspector anime, I just love that backpack and the Gundam-ish design. The amount of acessories also make this figure very interesting, but the price... makes me wait a super sale with at least 35% off to get it :(

By the way, I saw at Amiami that the first run came with a special disk (don't know if it's a CD or a DVD). Does someone know what is the content of the disk?

I believe it was an episode

I believe it was an episode or two or the show. I could be wrong though.

Also, I'm oddly enough not too big into this design. I think it's the visor that's bothering me. Seems slightly redundant.
