I've seen it on eBay for a while... and each time it showed up I don't
think people even bidded.

Hmm, your chogokin Gundam had two hyper bazookas?

>Gundam!

The SD toy was actually a parody of the Popy diecast toy from almost 20
years ago, which did not contain the "last shooting" damaged left arm
but had an actual transforming Core Fighter.
