We have here a quick review of the MSIA Byg Zam (read as Big Sam) 12 inch Toy Figure. MSIA Byg Zam was made by Bandai and was released back in the year 2000. All I could say the first time I saw it personally was “it is so HUGE!”. You gotta love the big MSIA series figures, they are really cool! You could definitely get the best “bang for buck” deal buying them. A collector’s item too since as I have said, they were made back in 2000, so MSIA Byg Zam is out of production – in other words hard to find nowadays. Well, let us take a look at the photos. ^_^
Unfortunately I do not have pictures of the box since I only have Byg Zam himself.
But here is a picture I found on the net regarding how the box looks like.
