In mid January I made an impulse buy after browsing through  Ebay looking at various anime figures. That purchase was the a Gundam Exia figure. The 00 Gundam version of Exia is a very new figure and was only recently introduced in the now ongoing series 2 of Gundam 00 (pronounced double o).

00 Gundam Figure on my Desk at home beside my miniature Air Jamaica

This is my first ever anime/manga figure and my first surprise was I had to assemble it and it doesn’t help that all the instructions were in Japanese. Luckily there were pictures accompanying the text and I think I managed alright (took me 3 hours!) although I forgot all about adding the stickers that came the eyes and a few more areas, but those will be added at a later date. I mumbled random Gundam building crap on twitter before picking up my package at the post office  which came all the way from Taiwan. After picking it up I mumbled even more on twitter while putting it together and while taking photographs. If you haven’t already done so please follow me on Twitter!

I sucked at taking pictures of my Gundam figure

There is room for lots of improvement when it comes to me posing and taking pictures of this and future (hopefully) figures. I might have a followup shoot when I have added the stickers and try to get the “flying though the air” effect in a few on my pics. I welcome tips.

Do you have a anime figure collection? Thinking about starting one? I welcome comments and feedback.

There is a new figures and toys section on my blog where I will post more….you guessed it..post about figures and toys. View all my pics of my 00 Gundam Exia Figure in the Figures and Toys section of the Gallery.
