WALX Series Gundam & New Gundam Books

A rather funny and strange Gundam product this is. XD

From Bandai, WALX Series Gundam is an upcoming Shokugan featuring "figures" of MSs from the Gundam universe in walking position. Clip and chain included so you can use them as keychains. The joints movable, so you can pose them walking or other simple poses. That's where the name of the series comes from actually.

All 10 types to be collected, including Gundam RX-78-2 (normal, clear color ver.), Zaku II, Char's Zaku II (normal, clear color ver.), Guncannon, Guntank, Dom, and Acguy (normal, clear color ver.). 55mm tall each.

September 28th release, 189 Yen each (inclusive of tax).
