After getting the HG Gadessa, I was about ready to get the HG Garazzo. Just before I was going to get it however, I noticed one important thing that was left out.
The GN blades were not separated on the HG model. Instead they were stuck together. Fortunately Bandai released the Garazzo in it’s Robot Damashii figure line which had the separated and finger-like blades.
How does a Robot Damashii hold up against an HG model? Pretty damn good.
The GNZ-005 Garazzo is a mecha suit piloted by Bring Stability a humanoid Innovator whose enemy is the Gundams in the series Gundam 00 Season 2. The Garazzo’s main armament/weaponary is his GN Beam Claws on both hands which also could form into a GN Hand Beam Saber.
The HG model of the Garazzo has the GN Hand Beam Saber included but not the Beam Claws which are exclusive, for now anyways, to the figure featured.
This being my first Robot Damashii figure I’m pretty impressed with it when comparing it to my HG Gadessa which is a similar design to the Garazzo. The figure is slightly smaller to the HG’s and of course already put together.
One thing about the figure that the pictures can’t really show you is that the white parts on the mecha are actually a white purplish tint that’s more closer to the anime’s version than a lot of the pics of the model and figure online where it looks plain white.
The figure does have panel lines that you can trace with Gundam markers like I did with mine to give it more of a detailed model-like quality. It really goes a long way.
The Garazzo comes with two face plates, one which is full red and the other with a regular mecha face with eyes and silver mouth plate which takes up a majority of the face. It’s fairly easy to remove and replace.
The figure has pretty good poseability and can do the majority of poses the HG Gadessa can. However there are some upper arm limitations on the Garazzo, but that’s based on how the shoulder armor is designed rather than some inner frame problem.
On the right should armor there is an extension like belt, on the other it’s the massive GN Shield, that stops the upper arms from going fully upwards at an angle but it’s not that much of problem since the figure’s torso can turn completely and bend from one side to another.
The legs, lower arms and hands have the same moveablity as the HG Gadessa, however this figure has the added choice of using four pairs of hands which include: two fisted hands with metal knuckles, two open hands, two GN Hand Beam Sabers and two GN Beam Claws.
The Garazzo has got a great design and its main weapon, the GN Claw Blades, look fantastic on the figure. Speaking of the figure, as already stated its poseablity is comparable to the HG Gadessa and its joints are pretty solid, there’s no loose armor since everything’s pretty much tacked on.
I wish the figure came with a stand since I just went ahead and used the HG Gadessa’s stand, but only then it was still a loose fitting for the figure. I’m also hoping they do decide at one point to include some decals down the line. I used some leftover decals for my modded Gadessa and I think decals would look good for this line.
Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to getting a few more Robot Damashiis after my purchase with this one.
