Shock...Gundam in China Town London!!!!

Post by Apsalas » Thu Feb 16, 2012 9:41 am

Hey Guys,

I was down in China Town London in its best Asian sweet shop and I came across these G Wing Gunpla/Biscuit sets for £1.50.

Bought 4 and got a Gundam HeavyArms, Wing Gundam and two Deathscythes

There's 8 to collect: Wing Gundam, Wing Gundam with extended wing, Wing Gundam transformed, Sandrock, HeavyArms, Deathscythes, Shenlong and Leo.

Not sure if there Boot Leg or not, they consist of 5 pieces, 2 Legs, 2 Arms, front and back of the torso/head/waist and a weapon. They're about two inches high.. please excuse the crappy Gundam Marker painting...got bored last night.

I've sent my GF to get me the other and I 'll try and paint them up after I've finised my Big Zam, Doven Wolf, Turn X, Jehuty, MG Guntank etc. :wink:

I had the real Japanese one back in 1995. I had the Wing Gundam Bird Mode, Death Scythe and the Leo. Gave the Leo to my cousin since I thought it was crap, but it turned out that it was a relatively rare one to get. They were all moulded in purple.

The confectionery contents consist of malt choc balls.

These type of candy toys were prevalent from the early nineties to the late nineties. Nearly all types of mecha anime characters had this type of candy toy.
