I have not been posting anything in such a long time, had to concentrate on college work and hardcore videogame grinding, and this paper folding hobby that I picked up a few months ago.
Anyways here we are with another figure review by yours truly. The Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks Wave 1 figure collection (or series? U dunno what its really called), was something I got in my mid grade school days. At the time I was only after Scorpion, but I could not buy him alone, I had to buy the set. I’ll have to admit, even if I wasn’t really after the three others, I must say its really worth it because these figures are no longer being produced, and I’ve seen the price difference now and compared to back then.
After ages of not posting anything, it’s about time that I contribute my share into this figure section! And here’s the Duel Gundam in its Assaultshroud!
Out of the SEED HG kits that I got, this one converts from its Assaultshroud mode back to being the good ol’ Duel Gundam with no armor.
This thing came with special rocket fire effects too!
And well I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking.
-Interestingly, despite it saying that he has a Level 5 Unitology RIG, it’s actually just a repaint of the Level 3 RIG armor. I’m a little disappointed in that, but it’s no big issue once I decided to customize Isaac. More on that in a future blog post.
-He only comes with a Plasma Cutter for an accessory, just about that, and nothing else.
-The RIG on his back has two button cell batteries, both are removable by detaching the RIG, then uncrewing the part on his back.
-Good poseability, but not as great as a figma or a Gundam.
-No he does not come with the skeleton, it just so happened I didn’t have a Necromorph figure to pose with him.
-Despite being a San Diego Comic Convention exclusive, this guy is not so exclusive when I easily found him in a toy store. No the toy store is not a collector store, it’s just an average one, like Toy Kingdom or Toys R’ Us. It’s surprising because whenever I look for a scale figure or a figma that’s labelled ‘Japan Exclusive’ I have a hard time finding it.
