Review by NekroDave
I've never been a really big fan of Jeeg, yet this is one of my favorite junior machinders. Maybe because you don't see it too often and it's very distinct from all the others that share similar heads and bodies and stuff.
Of course, having just said that, it is true that this one does share the same arms as many others, the ones having originated with Robo Kress. But so many of these toys have those arms it would almost seem strange if it didn't so I don't hold it against the toy. In fact, I think it works pretty well on this character, certainly much better than on toys like Dangard Ace or Pegas.
Jeeg is about 14.5" tall and seems to be made entirely out of polyethylene and hard plastic, even the head which is usually soft vinyl. Both fists shoot and the left fist can hold an axe. This weapon again is included with a great many junior machinders. It's final piece of artillery is a missile launcher located in the waist. Unfortunately, mine doesn't shoot anymore.
Jeeg has stickers on the arms, waist and neck and is articulated at the knees, hips, shoulders and neck. It comes in a nice box with some colorful and appealing artwork on the front. There is another, rarer Jeeg junior machinder out there, but I don't have that one. In fact, I can't even remember what it looks like.
This toy, as you might expect, is for die-hard Jeeg and machinder fans only.
