Lightning Base (Red)

Lightning Base

I also got one of these quite a while ago, because I was planning to use it with my Gundam Unicorn. Once I put the batteries in and turned it on, the result was not amazing, as I expected. These bases only have two LEDs installed and they point towards each other (if they were facing up, at least a few degrees, the effect would be better) and they barely light the figure that is placed on top of them.

These bases are design to be compatible with Bandai's action bases (they have the same octagonal shape and size), instead of being compatible with the Tamashii stands (guess it's primary use will be with Gunplas).

The only way to get a satisfying effect on the figure you're displaying is to use just the lightning base, without any other light source. And even then, the shine on the figure is not remarkable.

If Bandai added a couple more of LEDs facing up, then we would have a winner.

Thanks for the review!

Green Light!

I picked up one of these (the green light) along with a few Sparkle Green Action Base 1s for a Gundam 00 display and I have to say its not too bad under the right conditions. But it really helps when there's another light source of the same color or a clear display base attached to it to help bounce the light around.

Changing LEDs

What about changing the LED's to brighter more powerful ones? Does the base dismantle so you can get access to replace them?
