Pretty nice, but I prefer the original sazabi. And I super prefer the nightingale.

I think I gotta second that

I think I gotta second that opinion.

It took me many years to come to appreciate the Sazabi for various reasons, and now the 12" Deluxe toy is one of my Holy Grails. Perhaps, someday, I'll come 'round to liking the Sinanju, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Yeah it has flavors of the Sazabi, no doubt, but this seems a little too glamorous when compared to the Unicorn and Nu Gundams.

But regardless, nice review, Enthusiast!

I love both the Sazabi and SInanju designs

I would prefer the sinanju design over the Sazabi if it was chunkier and a little more menacing.

@eva_Unit_4A The 12 inch deluxe Sazabi figure is holy grail material indeed. It is one of my favorite figures in my collection. It was a pain to track down on ebay at a decent price.

Hate to be that Gundam fan...

And if you're not a fan of the source material, it probably seems like a dumb nitpick, but the Unicorn's awakened mode is the "Destroy" mode. Destiny is...from something else. We don't like to talk about it.

Anyway, the Sinanju is a terribly sexy mech.

Being a Gundam fan, perhaps

Being a Gundam fan, perhaps you could explain to someone who hasn't seen "SEED" (*ahem*) how to tell the difference at-a-glance between the Freedom and Strike Freedom Gundams... 'cause the look more-or-less the same to me and I always mix them up.

*DROOL* Oh baby, that's one

*DROOL* Oh baby, that's one red sexy mech! Can't wait to get that sucker. I do love the Sazabi, but it's always been a little chunky for my tastes. This guy slims it down a bit, then spikes 'em down with all those sharp edges. I love it! Only complaint I could have is that there seems like there's just too many options for sabers. How does he choose?

@Eva: freedom is more

@Eva: freedom is more stylish, and has a rifle and shield.
strike freedom is a little more blocky, has 2 rifles and a golden bellybutton cannon

Aww, I didn't even think of that-! And you're absolutely right.

Wicked mech

I bought my Sinanju last January, and I gotta say, I was impressed by this, though I don't intend to buy the RD Unicorns anytime soon. Something tells me the rocket bazooka will be an OE if it is ever released - I wished they included that here!

I'm working to complete The Sleeves, having bought the Elite Guard Geara Zulu but no standard and Angelo Sauper versions yet. Robot Spirits Kshatriya? THAT'S GONNA BE BIG!

I have this figure but I have a few questions

I love this figure. The more I look at it the more it blows me away. However, I was curious what the little U shaped bracket that comes with the figure is for. I was also curious what stands can be used for this since it does not come with one (though I have noticed some of the other ones do).

This figure is total sweetness of craft. Now I just hope for a Sazabi and maybe a Palace Athene!
