Gundam Fix Figuration 0016b Crossbone X-1 Review and Gallery

Dear Guntaku's, I know this review and Gallery is a bit tardy since this Fix Figuration Crossbone came out ages ago, but hey, I've got things to do and people to see! Truth be told, as much as I dig Fix Figuration, when this figure first came out, it wasn't on my top 10 list of toys to acquire for whatever reason. Sometimes you just gotta let things stew a bit...see if they go on sale...try to catch a deal on eBay now and again. This was one of those times. I would see this figure pop up every now and again and I really like the dark color scheme as you know Gundam sometimes has a tendency to be colored like a Bomb Pop for some reason. I've always liked the skull motif, the whole pirate theme and then there's the cape. When you see a Gundam in a cape, what more can you ask for? Not only a cape, but a really cool, weathered cape with laser blasts all up in there If you look closely, you can see that the cape's lining is actually Louis Vuitton! Talk about the bling bling! The actual thing that the Crossbone is named after sticks in the back and can become a little spaceship which is pretty cool. Pirate weapontry includes a Knight's fearsome lance, a swashblucking plasma buccaneer's sabre, a space-age flint-lock pistol and twin bowie knives!! The weapons alone make this figure worthwhile. Hurry, while they are still around. Most online retailers are out of stock on the 16b version, but I got mine on eBay for around $35 which is pretty reasonable.
