Have a look a the following review:

I assume you are referring to the Banpresto's DX "SD
Gundam Full Weapon set" of Gundam, Zaku II, and G3

Unlike other SD 'DX' figures which are made of hard
plastic, These trio are make of soft-vinyl. The upside
is each set comes with lots of asscessories such as
weapons and parts for transformation (e.g. Zaku II ->
Zaku Tank/Zaku Commander Type/Zaku High Mobility
Type), the downside is the soft vinyl can wear out
easily if you twist the body parts frequently, but
overall, at 2,000yen (or approx. US$18.80) these are
pretty neat, just don't twist them around all day. :)

Banpresto have released 'tranformable' SD character/MS
figures before back in 1990's, including
nu-Gundam/Amuro, Char's Zaku/Char. etc.. These look
like an improved re-issues, with only nu-Gundam
representing the Gundam series so far.
