RGM-89S Stark Jegan Gashapon Review

The lean green machine in discussion in this post is the RGM-89S Stark Jegan which first appeared in the Char's Counterattack MSV and it is now well known as the grunt unit for the Earth Federation in the first episode of the Gundam Unicorn OAVs. I bought this dude when i had a "I need to buy something!" kinda moment when i was in a shopping mall. And with luck on my side, the gashapon machine have only 1 "egg" left which is the Stark Jegan... Well, who could resist that?! ^^

Tony Stark Jegan is a formidable mobile suit that have lots of equipment and firepower, much more than the GMs of old, and with better agility. In the first battle scene from Gundam Unicorn episode 1, the Jegans bravely fought the Kshtriya from the Neo Zeon and although they lost, it showed that grunt units are not to be messed with. Its armaments include a 60mm vulcan, beam sabers, grenade launcher, missile pods, beam rifle and a hyper bazooka.

Overall, the details on this figure is very impressive due its size and i can say all the colour is near perfect except for some small components. Playability is.. gashapon standard, however it looks cool on display and with a 300yen price tag, i would say that its a bargain.
