A friend got this in Japan and gave it to me along with a wind-up Dom and Big Zam. Once the toy wind-up, it walks and its head wobbles. In the midst of all the cool and ultra detail toys releases in the recent years, sometime I find it refreshingly retro to play with these simple yet enjoyable toys...especially when it is the RX-78-2 Gundam. Perhaps will make a short video of the Dom chasing the RX-78-2 Gundam later...

New Gundam Game is Fun and Free-to-Play (…For Only 30 Minutes a Day)
About three weeks back, Bandai-Namco released their first
big-name, free-to-play title, Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation on the
PlayStation 3. Set during the original Gundam series, this multiplayer
third-person shooter reenacts some of the biggest battles in the One Year War,
with six people siding with the Earth Federation and six with Zeon. But is this
first step into the world of free-to-play gaming a worthwhile one or is Gundam
Battle Operation just another example of "you get what you pay for."
Good — Unique Take on Capture-the-Points Gameplay
The game itself is set up like your standard
capture-the-point versus mode—you go out, capture points, and then defend them.
What makes Gundam Battle Operation unique is how you do it. To capture a point
you actually have to leave your mobile suit, making you vulnerable to bullets
and explosions—as well as giant robot feet. If you kill an enemy player while
he's outside his suit, you can take it over yourself, allowing you access to
all its weapons. If you're smart, you can even sneak behind enemy lines and lay
a bomb on the enemy home base—pretty much guaranteeing you the number one spot
on the scoreboard.
Good — A Real Weight to Your Giant Robot
The mobile suits in Gundam Battle Operation handle far more
like enormous lumbering tanks than giant humans—and this is a good thing. Every
suit feels heavy and moves realistically for an object of its size. This makes
weight—and therefore speed and maneuverability—an important consideration when
choosing your mobile suit. Are you willing to ditch your armor to speed back
and forth across the battle field, or would you rather be able to shrug off
enemy bullets like annoying flies? The choice is up to you and your play style.
