Double O Gundam – My First Anime Figure

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).

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.

  1. Congrats on making it. Some of my friends (both here and back home) love making models from the different Gundam series so I know a bit about the hard work that goes into it. I’ve only got a few anime/manga figures, but they’ve all been pre-assembled.

  2. Congratulations on building your first Gunpla! I used to build a lot of Gundam model kits back in the day during the Gundam Wing popularity here in the US. It’s been a very long time since I last built one and I’m looking into building them again…including the battleships, like the White Base from the first Mobile Suit Gundam. <3

  3. Excellent! Nothing with ever be as good as gundam wing, but 00 comes close. Are there any figures of them in trans-am mode?

  4. hey congratulations, join us in the gunpla world! ^^; I’d like to note here that Gundam 00 is not another version of Exia, it’s a new gundam itself that was derived from Exia.. maybe if u watch the first season you’ll see what happens to exia.

    best wishes,
    Matsuo.

  5. thanks for the comments guys!

    @ Stunner, now that you mention it, the colours are very similar!

    @ TC, I think there are a few trans-am figures from season 1

    @ matsuoamon…I have watched season 1 and know what happened to Exia, I guess with the design similarities and having the same pilot I look at it as the successor to Exia in many ways. Thanks for your welcome, I am already addicted and I have ordered my second figure!

  6. Please, could you say what is the scale of this Exia?

    I want to buy one, but I want to know the scale…

    Thanks!
