The long-awaited “MSN-04 Sazabi” is now available from the “kaitai-shou-ki”The composite material, which consists of about several thousand parts, can be enjoyed in various forms due to the texture reminiscent of the real thing, the armor deployment gimmick of each part, and the mechanism that gradually deforms.

Another “top” that arrived after three years. “Dismantling” and “construction” that are repeated in every part. When the hazy contours connect the lines, an unexplored cliff appears.

As it is a Metal Structure version of the heavy MS Sazabi, which tends to be expensive in any series, the price has become a tremendous amount, almost double the nu gundam, but the precision feeling and painting that more than 3000 parts are used for the total height of 43 cm. The details and markings were also elaborated, and although it was a pity that there was one paint defect, it was a powerful figure that I had never seen before, and I was satisfied with the outstanding price.
Like Nu Gundam, it doesn’t seem like it’s possible to move and play around with it because of its size and weight. There are plenty of other playable elements, such as a gimmick for deploying a certain armor, a minifigure that enhances the presence, and a luxurious pedestal, so I didn’t have any complaints about the content.
It’s been 3 years since the first Nu Gundam, so it looks like the next one will be another 2-3 years.
