Here’s the battle scarred version of the Gundam Nataku from Gundam Wing. The Cartoon Network Toonami releases. The picture on the bottom is the “undamaged” version.
Here’s the “Battled Scarred” Sandrock Gundam from G Gundam. I also have the “undamaged” version – the 2nd image below.
Here’s another carded Gundam I got from Craigslist – this time the Mummy Gundam representing Egypt. I never had this one as I never really liked the character but I’m glad I got him as part of the lot as I wouldn’t have spent money on him otherwise.
Here’s the “battle scarred” version of the Gundam Heavyarms Custom from Gundam Wing Endless Waltz. This was another one that I got as part of a lot purchased from Craigslist.
The picture below are the other colors of this Heavyarms Gundam in “undamaged” form.
Here’s 4.5 inch version of the Gundam Maxter from Mobile Suit G Gundam. This figure represents the USA or Neo America and he’s supposed to be a boxer. I have the 7 inch version as well. I got this as part of large lot I got from Craigslist.

I remember accidentally breaking off the little plastic spikes on his head. I was so pissed. No chance of Dr. Saotome fixing my robot. Now that I am looking at the copy on the box I realize how little these guys can do. You can’t pose them, they can’t bend, just rotate arms and shoot. I have heard the Japanese versions can bend their legs, whoopee! Though I can’t say my Star Wars figures did much more. Still this is my favorite Shogun Warrior they have a lot of nostalgia for me. The red one. Like a shiny red sports car, it really is the best color.
These Dragun, Poseidon, and Raider hail from Getter Robo G/Starvenger fame. Not sure why those franchises did not setup merchandising right for the robots in the US. Instead Marvel purchased the rights and used them for their comic book Shogun Warriors and the robot line we got to see in the US. It’s too bad they did not produce a matching cartoon. I am a little surprised that these did not end up in the GoDaiKin line instead as many of the Popy robots made their way there.
Just got done editing my cousin’s posts, so now I can start working on putting my collection up again. Happy Holidays everyone! ***
I love Gundam. And I love big robots. And this, THIS is a very large Zaku. Both of my favorite things in one toy! It is interactive, so if you have the other Gundam Motorized action figure(I think it is the RX-78) it kind of looks like they are fighting. Saw this monstrous robot for $15 at Target as they were clearing it out and I just had to buy it.
I think it is 18″. That’s less than a dollar an inch. There is a hole in the packaging so you can press a button to see the Zaku in action. It moves left and right and waves his axe and gun around. The speaker spouts out loud music and copy from the first anime series I believe. Actually that part is kind of irritating, but it is fun to watch once a year.
Yeah, I still haven’t taken it out of the box. I hate the idea of dusting this thing.
Merry Christmas all! ***
Here’s most of the Gundams that I have recently purchased. The 3 on the top shelf are models, that I’m displaying since the models may get broken if I try to re-pack them. Most of the stuff I have displayed are Gundam but I have a few Transformers and Diarobos since they’re small.
Since I picked up a bunch of these, I decided to put up a Gundam theme display of my 4.5″, 7.5″ and 12″ Bandai Mobile Fighter Action Figures
