The pilot of this Mobile Suit

The pilot of this Mobile Suit is a woman - Marida Cruz, and it is not a Gundam, just come from a Gundam series.
At first it belonged to the Neo Zeon remnants, which is the "bad guys", but then after many events, they turned good and started fighting against some other bad dudes...

...that's what I'm guessing, since I haven't watched the whole Unicorn series, just the final episode. Nevertheless, a great toy. Might be even greater with its' companion, Unicorn Gundam.

Funnel Cakes!

Great review Josh, I'm surprised you didn't ask me to fill in the story details about the Suit.
Don't worry, I'll cover the important story facts in my "Round to It" review of the High Grade Model (coming, eventually).

The Robot Spirits figure of the Funnel Cakes (fan nick-pit nickname because of its weapons) looks amazing, and has a lot more moving parts and panels than the kit, especially considering the material weight and size. The inclusion of the effects parts really boosts its display value. Shame about the display base even though how elegant it looks.

One last thing and even though the figure doesn't live up to this, according to the design the beam sabers are supposed to be stored in the wrist cuffs. If it's any consolation, not even the HGUC model can do that either.

I thought about asking you

I thought about asking you Rob, but I thought for this one I really wanted to concentrate on the aesthetics of the toy and not get bogged down with the who what when where why of this thing. I just wanted to appreciate it without the baggage.

Carry On

Understood. There's a bit of carry on baggage with this suit's pilot's story but no big deal! You nailed it with the aesthetics.

Great Review

I'm not too savvy(sp?) with the histroy of Gundam, but I am liking the toys/kits from this series. I might have to go check out the anime, and see what it's all about. Thanks for the great review Josh!!!

Meaning of Kshatriya

Just some additional info, Kshatriya (or Ksatria in a simpler form) means "knight" in Malay or Indonesian language. Some of the words in our native language are direct inheritance from Sanskrit, especially for our fellow Hindu and Buddhist countryfolk ^_^

BTW, hi! I'm new here. Nice to meet you.
