Super Amazing Gundam Knock-off Fun Tiem!1!

Gundam has some pretty sweet looking robots so who wouldn’t want to copy them. I mean, they’re Japanese robots with guns and swords, there’s not much stuff in the world that’s cooler than that. Except Ninja Gundams….. But anyway.

So we saw these two Gundam knock-offs at Big Lots called SUPERDUTY HERO. I was excited, they looked silly and cheap and knock-offy.gundamknockoff1 gundamknockoff2So we got both of them at $5 each which was way too much. You’ll see why. We got them in the car and opened them and almost immediately, I kid you not, the right hand (the only one that could hold weapons) broke off completely. On both of them! So there goes most of the fun. But what was scarier was that they felt almost as light as a few paper clips. I was incredibly disturbed seeing as how we’d just spent $10 on them, and there was hardly anything there. Kudos to the company that made these though for tricking us into actually buying them. Dirty commies.

I don’t know much about Gundam but I’m pretty sure these are direct replicas of characters from the show, judge for yourself. The big weapons which look like a funky sniper rifle and a gatling gun don’t fit in any part of them but hey, free plastic guns!gundamknockoff3 gundamknockoff4They have holes in them like sound is supposed to come out of them and the gatling gun has like, LED things on it but I couldn’t find any place to open them to put batteries or anything of the like in them, which was very sad. All in all I got ripped off but I’m not gonna waste gas returning them. Oh and every part of them pretty much breaks off at the slightest amount of pressure so they’re not even good to play with. 4/10

I hope you enjoyed this review and learned something. That something probably sounds like, “If it looks like it’s a cheap piece of crap, it probably is.”. Drop a comment plz.

  1. Dunno about direct replicas – I’m not knowledgeable enough about Gundam to tell – but judging by the characters on the packaging in the first image (middle right hand side), I’d say we’re talking Gundam SEED designs.

    Ah, those would be knockoffs of the Destiny (from SEED) and God Gundam (from Mobile Fighter G Gundam), in the order shown in this post. I was rather surprised at the audacity of the company that made these, that they even included characters from the show on the pakaging art as well as pictures of the official toy lines with no attempts made to hide the fact. :D

    I picked up the Destiny out of lulz factor and wanting to have something really cheap to practice with various types of putty and paints before applying them to the genuine model kits… but it seems that these aren’t even good for that.

    Oh well… they piece of junk amused me while it lasted.
