Gundam FIX Figuration 0038 - Gundam Mk-III

I bought this figure at a relatively expensive price. I haven’t bought a new release FIX for a long time and simply couldn't resist the curiosity. I don't know much about this Gundam and only later found out that it belongs to Z-MSV, which is a Zeta Gundam Mobile Suit Variations. You can check the bottom of this thread for more information about Mk-III.

All in all this is a well-made FIX. I really like the design of the shield and arms of this Gundam. The white armor makes a nice contrast with the relatively boring grey-colored body. However I don't care much about the armor for the legs. They have two ridiculous canons on the side and the parts don't even fit right. Many of the latest FIX figures have severe loose joint problem and many parts doesn't snap-on (more like place-on).









In case you wonder, this weapon (關刀) is from Fix 0035 - Shin Musha Gundam.

Price: $338 HKD

Technical and Historical Notes
The MSF-007 Gundam Mark III is developed by a group of technical experts at Anaheim Electronics after receiving data on the RX-178 Gundam Mark II that the AEUG steals from the Titans. The Gundam Mk III uses an improved version of the Gundam Mk II's movable frame, which allows for movement close to that of a human being. Aside from the standard beam sabers and beam rifle, the Gundam Mk III is also equipped with a pair of beam cannons. The Gundam Mk III is manufactured at three different locations - Kilimanjaro, Gryps and Anaheim Electronics, and there are three known types. However, it is unknown what resemblance the Anaheim design bears to the Titans designs. It is also possible that the Eagle Type design may have been constructed.
