This RX-78-2 Gundam Head Display (coin bank) which we are going to unbox and review is amazingly huge! I said that because it is as big as a human head (literally). And do take note that this one has lights and sounds when you insert a coin which adds to the coolness factor LOL. I bet this makes saving coin a lot more fun hehe. I really could not find enough info about this one. Though the only thing I know (which I hope is right) is that this was part of the 7/11 promo last year (2010 top raffle prize). Because this year it was the Unicorn Head Display which was released. I think making this kind of Gundam Head Displays is an annual thing. Without further ado, let us move on with the review.

Head display was separated only in two parts during packaging
the head and the v-fin
attaching the V-Fin
comparing it again with SD Astray RF
Now to put on the batteries we need a precision screwdriver (or the like)
Glad that it came with free batteries. The seller was really nice!
Ok, now we are done! Let us see it in action!
This is what it normally looks like
This is it when the light and sounds are activated.
Every time you place a coin on top, it triggers the switch.
Here is a video I made showing the lights and sound effects in action.
More pictures! ^_^

Against me! hahah! If it were bigger, I would probably use it a helmet. LOL
