So I found out that this exists.
I had NO IDEA until I OPENED THE BOX.
I thought it was only Elpeo Ple’s Qubeley, but nooooo, it came with the pieces for Marida’s Mass Production Qubeley.
SO THEY MADE ONE TOY OF IT AND IT IS FRAGILE AS FUCK.
It is beautiful.
Every single funnel is removable, so I could have 42 funnels lost in total if I was stupid and misplaced or dropped her.
The body of it is so damn detailed that the legs have detailing under the armour plates, and have the warning decals on the inside of plates where they will get covered up as the result of putting them on.
The torso took over an hour to assemble, because the hinge is a freaking ball joint and the place to attach it on the Mass Production is slightly smaller than the regular Ple version.
The head of the qubeley is so beautiful that I may display the Ple one on it’s own.
I cried for a solid ten minutes and continued to be in awe of this thing’s existence for all of last night, and I still am.
I am still sobbing over it
These are the GFF. Gundam Fix Figuration. This line sort of stopped now. Certain figures still get the GFF retention but Bandai Japan more or less abandoned this line for what we now know as Robot Spirits. The wanted to focus on more playable toys where as the GFF line was more fragile and model like made more as collectible statues with slight articulation.
While Japan isn’t big on making villain figures the Zeonogrophy line featured only Zeon characters of course. The other notable feature was as noted in the other statements was that while you got the featured mobile suit they usually gave you the extra pieces to make another version of that mobile suit. Some of the GFF figures go for expensive prices now. Regardless of being so fragile they are some great figures.
