We have here an unboxing and building review of the (mobile suit in action) MSIA DX Sazabi 12 inch toy figure/model. I prefer to call this a hybrid between a toy figure and a model kit because some parts are needed to be assembled in order to be used like the shield, weapons and the funnels. This thing is very huge – like a 1/60 version of Sazabi. If not of 1/60 scale, still it is the closest one we got that is Bandai made. Besides most PG kits stands at an average of 12 inches. The MSIA DX series is the biggest scale in the MSIA line up. Unfortunately they are discontinued. Manufacturing dates indicates that they were released in the market wayback the year 2002. If you find one, then I suggest you buy it. Now moving on with the review.
Bandai 2002 – Made in China
Back of the box
Some features of the toy figure
The box is bigger than most MG kit boxes
These are the contents
The bundle on the right are the runners and other accessories
A single paged manual is included
I noticed that the rear and side skirt armors are not connected initially
By the way, it is already PRE-PAINTED.
Also, the knee part is bandaged with plastic which I think is to keep them from bending or folding
The rear skirt armor goes there
Side skirt armor markings
ball joint provision for the side skirt armor
Now with the skirt armors attached. 🙂
Now getting the accessories means fighting your way through tons of packaging tape
LOL – maybe just keeping them secure… that’s all…
-runners for the funnels and weapons
5 runners in total
nothing too complicated… you can attached them without looking at the manual 🙂
SHIELD and BEAM Effects
The manual – everything in it… Nothing on the other side haha
Building the Funnels
Grey part is prepainted

nice nice nice! So Cool!!! Are you going to re-paint this Sazabi?
maybe do some touch ups… change the beam effects to green perhaps… or add a little height ^_^
