SDX Knight Gundam Review – part 2

Continue from SDX Knight Gundam Review part 1, this time round I’m playing with other accessories like the Centaur form (I love this) and the lance. Compare other SDX figure, Knight Gundam gives me a very strong gladiator feel! I’m happy as a Robot Toy collector :D Too bad my camera’s battery died too soon during the review, anyway let’s hope that I’ll include him for my future photo shoots :D

The lance is attached at a part right behind the helmet.

Although the lance is long but it is made of soft rubberish material, so it won’t break easily

Overall…

I’m really lucky to get this figure where it sold out right after my purchase. It is gonna be very expensive if I want to get this from ebay (hardly anyone selling…). As the 1st SDX figure, the quality is doing great where many of the parts are made out of metal. The figure’s weight is really nice, the frames are solid and articulation is marvelous for SD Gundam. But be careful of the 2 spikes of the metal shoulder armor, It is really sharp O.o

Despite the high price, the moment you hold the figure, spend some time playing with it and you know the price worth it. Many people argued that “It is better to get a MG Gunpla compare to this”. But those are the people who never even touch a single SDX before. I find it hilarious where some “toy expert” give such comment without touching it. If you are not a fan of SD, just say it. Don’t simply downgrade something just because you are not buying it.

    @LongYC: I hope Bandai can gives more thoughts on the gimmicks too. Like what they did for Wizard Nu Gundam, the special effect parts are fun to play with.

    @redmage20386: Thanks. I used Panasonic Lumix LX-3 for my photos. Took the photo under micro mode with f2.0
