Don't be expecting the same qualities you found in the Kado Senshi chogokin
Gundam toy from the New Material Model of Turn A. The Turn A toy has more
metal parts by comparison, but it just didn't feel like a toy made to be
played with, like the chogokin Gundam. Articulation is also nowhere as good.
This item appears to be a merchandise aimed squarely at diehard collectors
who'd buy anything Gundam, or the speculators who are buying it for investment
purposes, counting on the toy's eventual increase in value like the Godaikin
toys from the early 80s.

The chogokin Char's Zaku II is actually more posable than the Gundam in some
areas (notably the lower torso/legs, balancing was excellent compared to the
chogokin Gundam) but its non-MG proportions is an acquired taste...
