Review by JoshB
This bootleg is most likely a scaled-up version of the 1/100 scale model kit from Bandai. It's probably scaled up to 1/60 scale. He was purchased at Dollar Bills Discount Center in Derry, NH, for $9.99.
First of all, you cant help but notice how nice the card is. Unlike most bootlegs, this card actually has a lot of thought put into it.
The figure itself is bland, and made of your typical bootleg quality plastic. The gun is very well constructed. It folds up to become a shield. It also comes with a long, bazooka-like cannon. The articulation is not as good as a model, as some of the pieces have been fused together to make it easier to produce.
The only construction flaw is the wings..They don't stay up. I think I have them on backward in the photos, but they are removable.
You can see that all you need is a Gundam Paint Marker to do the panel lines and you have a great looking toy.
