Below are the Deathscythe Gundam and the Battle Scarred Deathscythe Hell Gundam from Gundam Wing. I got both from a large lot of loose Gundam recently purchased on Craigslist.
Here’s another figure that I got as part of a large lot purchased on Craigslist. I wouldn’t have purchased this myself but he’s cool enough. This is the Asura Gundam representing Neo Singapore. I didn’t know Singapore had an entry in Mobile Fighter G Gundam, although I didn’t really follow that series. This 6 armed monster Gundam comes with a pretty bad color scheme as well.
I couldn’t find the cartoon still of the figure below but did find a model kit. According to Gundam Wiki, this model has been around since the beginning (Gundam 0079). I have seen this one in other series such as the MS-08th Team from the late 80’s.
Here’s one of my favorite Zeon mecha – the Jagd Doga in green/yellow. This is one that I got in a large lot of loose Gundam figures. He’s missing the left shoulder plate but otherwise, he’s complete and I’m happy as he’s hard to find in this color scheme. This appeared in Char’s Counterattack 1988. The toy I have is in the green/yellow paint scheme but the cartoon has it in blue/yellow and red/white version.
Here’s one of the many loose figures that I just purchased. This is the Nataku from Gundam Wing. It is the 4.5 inch figure in the US release that came out from Cartoon Network in 2000.
Here’s a brand new Arch Enemy Gelgoog MS-14S from the anime Gundam Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack that came out in the early 2000’s. This is the Gelgoog Commander Type piloted by Char Aznable. I scored this (and huge lot of loose 4 inch figures) from an awesome guy I met through Craigslist. I never had this when it came out as the Zakus weren’t too popular here – you only saw the Gundams. Thus, when I went to Asia in 2004, I made sure I got as many of the Zakus as I could get my hands on.
I will make a separate post for most of the robots below, a lot of MSIA Gundam. But I just had to make one big post for a nice haul of Gundam Wing/G Gundams/0080/Endless Waltz loose figures that I scored from a nice guy on Craigslist. Not only did I get a good price, but I had none of these figures since I didn’t get too involved in these genres… I had never considered using Craigslist before but I lucked out thanks to my cousin’s suggestion.
What you see here is after I spent nearly 5 hours re-constructing each piece as each was in some state of disrepair i.e. missing arm, shoulder armor, shoulder, leg, weapon etc. So, in the right image you can see I have a YouTube video of a toy review of one of the toys so that I could figure out which pieces go with what.
This is a Bandai Mega Size Dragon Gundam representing Neo China. I can’t remember where I bought this but I believe I bought this in Portland on the way to my cousin’s wedding in 2002.
