#3004: ROBOT DAMASHII <Side KMF> | RZA-3F9 TRISTAN
PROFILE (KNIGHTMARE FRAME MODE)
PROFILE (FORTRESS MODE)
When the ROBOT Damashii line started in 2008, the first figures came from the more recent series at that time, one being CODE GEASS Lelouch of the Rebellion R2. Capitalizing on the popularity of this production, Bandai was able to produce a wider selection of figures, including the transformable knightmare frame Tristan. The figure is a standard ROBOT Damashii release though noticeable limitations manifests its earlier production. While Tristan has great poseability, but the built-in Float System introduces weight issues for ground-based stances. However, this isn’t the case for aerial poses by combining excellent articulation and a dynamic silhouette. And though the ROBOT Damashii line isn’t known for transforming figures, converting Tristan to Fortress Mode is simple enough that the engineering doesn’t introduce problems. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for its accessories, which include two Harken-type Maser Vibration Swords, holding manipulators, and an alternate head with an active Factsphere Sensor. The manipulators attach via very small ball joints that they will pop off at the slightest movement. Also, while the Megido Harkens can be detached from the forearms, the figure doesn’t include flexible wires to simulate deployment.
