HY2M Air Shock Battle 1/12 Beam Saber - review


I got this cool Gundam toy a few days ago and wanted to post photos the moment I opened the old box. HY2M stands for Hyper Hybrid Model and this is a 1/12 Air Shock Battle Beam Saber released way back 2008. I think based on the box, this is compatible with the huge HY2M 1/12 Gundam replica sold for 3,400 USD at Bandai Hobby Shop.

Obviously I can only afford the beam saber and I love this toy / replica so much. When you turn on the beam saber it vibrates and releases a nice start up sound. It then releases some humming sounds whenever it is idle and it also turns off when unplayed for a minute or so.

The beam saber has motion sensors that releases different kinds of swooshing sounds depending on your movement. Try pretending that you are a Gundam and pull the beam saber from your back, the sound is really cool and it even has some vibrations.

Their are two red switches on the hilt, the first one releases more swooshing sound effects and the other one is way cooler as it releases some Amuro phrases! A red light around the tip area also lights up as you play with the beam saber. The speakers is at the bottom of the beam saber and it releases not so loud sound,  I mean the sound effects could be louder and flashier.

Anyways, never mind the kiddie lights and sound effects, the toy / replica looks soooo stunning on my computer desk. This is a must have for any Gundam fan as it is not that expensive at 1,400 Php. Now here are some photos...
