Robot Damashii Nu Gundam & Full Expansion Set Review

Today we are going to have a double unboxing review. We decided to open up the Robot Damashii Nu Gundam and the RD Full Expansion Set (Bandai online shop exclusive item sold separately) so we could see what are the benefits of buying the Full Extension Set. This set here is the first Robot Damashii that we ever bought. The reason behind why we bought them is because this is the only set we know of that could replicate the Pyramid Shield Defense of the Nu Gundam. Sure you could scratch build it, but SB-ing is a something we don’t have time to do. So simply put, if you want to have a nice Pyramid Shielding Nu Gundam in your cabinet without effort then by all means get this set. Being our first RD, we do not have basis with regards to quality. But we do not have any complaints about the figure overall. A 9.5 out of 10 rating would suffice.

BOXES

 

 

The Nu Gundam Full Expansion Set came in with the shipping box still intact

So inside the box is that pinkish big box

It would be sad to have the Full Expansion Set but not having the Nu Gundam itself.

So I consider these two a combo.

Now let us try using the other effects parts

** note** – I really had a hard time trying to assemble the ball joints. Putting the balls into the socket needed a little biting which I learned after minutes of trying to put it by hand.

Test fitting the pyramid:

– it was really simple, you just need to fold the clear plastic and form that pyramid shape

8154316298 cc383b65da m Robot Damashii Nu Gundam & Full Expansion Set Review

 

then attach 5 funnels into the burst effects

8154290065 d645cae89b m Robot Damashii Nu Gundam & Full Expansion Set Review

 

 

TADA!

– I wish it was as simple as that

– I had a hard time attaching the four lower corner burst effects

– It took me 5 minutes to figure out how to place them, because the manual was not really helpful at all

Testing:  still has the plastic cover so it looks cloudy
