#2012: ROBOT DAMASHII <Side MS> | XXXG-00W0 WING GUNDAM ZERO
PROFILE (MOBILE SUIT MODE)
PROFILE (NEO-BIRD MODE)
There has been a resurgence of interest in Gundam Wing for the last couple of years due to the currently running manga New Mobile Report Gundam W Endless Waltz —The Glory of Losers—. In response to this, Bandai has released Master Grade model kits of the original Wing Gundam and all the EW Versions of the first five Gundams. However, there hasn’t been a proper update of the original Wing Gundam Zero in both High Grade and Master Grade forms as of this writing. As such, filling in that model kit void is the ROBOT Damashii release of Wing Gundam Zero. While adhering to the original design, the figure is a clear amalgamation of modern aesthetic standards as seen through its level of detail and use of multiple shades first seen in Real Grades. As expected from the ROBOT Damashii line, the figure has top-notch articulation complemented by a design-accurate Neo-Bird Mode through the use of conversion parts. The same accuracy is carried over to the accessories, highlighted by its signature Twin Buster Rifle that can split into two for recreating those memorable stances seen in the animation. Wing Gundam Zero also has the standard arsenal of beam sabers, shoulder-mounted machine cannons and its iconic shield. Overall, those wanting a modern representation of the Wing Gundam Zero design won’t be disappointed with this release.
