Gundam figure number 5 arrived recently to ease my Gundam figure addiction for a little while. Exia is the main mobile suit from Gundam OO season one and the piloted by the star of the entire series. I really didn’t like Setsuna at first and didn’t think he was a skilled enough pilot but he grew on me and matured in season 2 and I decided to grab Exia after it’s heroics in the second season.

As expected the Exia figure is very similar to the Gundam OO with minor head and torso tweaks and of course the Double O as the name implies has twin engines. Other than those differences the layout, colours and limbs are almost the same which I really don’t mind as the Double O gundam figure is very sturdy when assembled and probably one of the few things that are blue in life that like, Chelsea Football club being another. I mistakenly labeled my double o figure as Exia and was corrected by a reader, so that gives you an idea just how similar they are.

Five gundam figures later and I still want more. I have 2 unbuilt badboys still boxed up in my room that I will be building and posting about next, the first one being my favourite mobile suit of the entire series that I hinted about in my Poken winning post and the second is super cool surprise for Gundam geeks like me. Check out Exia’s specs and some more pictures below.
