1. Save the World with Gipsy Avenger
Pacific Rim Uprising just took the world by storm in 2018 with its adrenalin-pumping, action-packed scenes, and this is due in no small part to Gipsy Avenger, the agile and heroic lead character. It may only be 17cm tall but it sure promises truckloads of fun as you manipulate its interchangeable forearms to produce its two signature weapons. And that’s not all! It comes equipped not only with a chain sword and a gravity sling, but also with extra hands, thus making it the complete package you should get your hands on. Move its nimble limbs and transport yourself back to the movie – where you can re-enact how Gipsy Avenger saved the world from total annihilation.
2. Guardian Bravo ready to rumble
In the mood for passionate red? Well, you’re in luck as Bandai has launched the resplendently red Guardian Bravo as part of its Pacific Rim Uprising series. Now, not only is Guardian Bravo eye-catching, it is also a formidable force to be reckoned with! It comes equipped with an Elec-16 Arc Whip, which is an awesome tool when you wish to replicate those addictively enthralling action scenes in the movie. Besides that, it boasts Core Salvo charges and high-impact shin mounts – features that serve to enhance its deadliness. So enjoy this Jaeger which is as attractive as it is powerful!
3. Cutting a handsome figure, this Gyan
You love Gundam to bits, and watch every single anime series there is out there. The ver. A.N.I.M.E. series is, of course, not foreign to you and you dig how it fuses 35 years of Gundam history with the most advanced technology to create high-quality Robot Spirits like never before. If this description fits you to a tee, you will surely be intrigued by the YMS-15 Gyan. Soothing your eyes with its calming blue and brown, Gyan looks like an armored knight – with super cool weapons. It wields its mighty beam saber with one hand while holding on to a missile shield with the other. What’s more, it boasts two pairs of double-launch needle missile effects and triple-launch needle missile effects each. Truly your knight in shining armor!
4. Flaunting its multitude of weapons
Another great character from the ver. A.N.I.M.E. series is none other than MS-06FZ Zaku II Kai. First seen in “Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket”, it left an indelible impression on viewers’ minds due to its skill with many weapons. Needless to say, this figurine comes with its signature MMP-80 machine gun with a grenade launcher, a 3-slot grenade rack, a shoulder shield as well as a heat hawk, thus guaranteeing you authenticity. Its myriad weapons afford you many hours of lively merriment as you familiarize yourself with them and have a good trip down memory lane reminiscing about the weapons that were used during certain pivotal scenes in the series. Awesome sauce!
