Those holes

Those holes on shoulder armor are hardpoint system that will enable weapons from other Robot Damashii to attach to them. It first appeared in RD RX-78 then Zaku, then Gouf Custom. I think there is RD Zaku review here in this site if you want to check.

But Buster doesn't have any

But Buster doesn't have any mods that I am aware of, even in SEED-MSV. Verde Buster is a completely different figure from this one, so that mod is out too.

Well it doesn't have to be official. Nobody said you can't mount UC weapons on CE suit. Part swapping is always fun. Afterall, we never saw RX-78 with crazy amount of weapons attached to it in the anime, yet RD heavily encouraged people to do that.

Or maybe they're planning to release some newly designed add-on for CE suits someday.

No diecast

Robots spirits have never used die-cast, mainly because it would probably increase the price. Generally speaking toy/figure lines either include die-cast in every release, or they don't, simple as that. Having bought a few robot damashiis, this sounds like a relative disappointment for the line, but still not a bad release.

Well, the Buster doesn't lend itself well to accessories (at least none that I've heard of), so there isn't much variety there.

It may not have as much flash as other RD releases, but if it wasn't for the difficulty in dealing with the primary gimmick, I'd still have given it a good rating.

It's got a huge gun, and the framework to attach any number of other weapons you have from other releases. Seems like the perfect setup for accessories to me. I think it's rad they threw in the hardpoints as a little something extra for people who own some of the other figures and like to really play with their figures.

We've also covered a number of other hardpoint compatible RD releases on CDX, so it seems like anyone picking one of these up should be aware of that system of interchangeability.

Sorry, I didn't put that

Sorry, I didn't put that together until after this review had already been published. Maybe I should have looked closer at previous RD releases before I wrote this.
