|The XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero from Endless Waltz (Converge #57) compared to the new XXXG-01W Wing Gundam.|
Apart from the shield the Tallgeese is equipped with its massive Dober Gun projectile weapon which has a very nice touch in the separate support piece which is plugged into the gun and then into the mobile suit's shoulder. Articulation is the standard rotating shoulder and head, but unlike most figures the right hand is molded directly onto the arm (since it would not be possible to rotate the wrist without severing the link between the gun and the shoulder anyway). This is one of those spectacular little figures that belongs in every Converge collection. Now, if the Tallgeese II or III also were to appear in Converge I would get all warm and fuzzy inside.

here) looks much more intimidating than this oddish bright red go-cart. It is an interesting design though I haven't yet finally decided whether I like it or not. Something of its character was lost in the transition to Converge-scale, though the figure itself is quite entertaining. Articulation is as limited as you would expect, you can rotate the arms at the shoulder, but everything else remains rigidly in place.
In summary, Converge volume 15 is a great set. It features eight great figures (yes, even the Gigan is cool in its own peculiar way) in widespread styles and colour schemes, and I love how it dives deep into lesser known (or appreciated) Gundam series to pick up some really unusual mobile suits. Two thumbs up and let's see if Bandai can keep up this level of excellence with the soon to be released Converge 16.
