Following the unboxing, here is the review for the NX Edge Style Nightingale from the novel Beltorchika’s Children. Like the NX Edge Style Hi-Nu Gundam before it, this Nightingale toy is beautifully done.
The fact we even have a Nightingale toy, in any scale or style, is something worth no small amount of rejoicing. Due to its novel-based origins, the wonderful Yutaka Izubuchi design has often been neglected over the years. Well, Bandai is here to correct that oversight.
Despite the super deformed styling and smaller size, this is a very comprehensive little figure.
The articulation is very decent for the size and can enact a number of poses. The supplied stands also allow for aerial type poses and considering this is meant to be a space based mobile suit means the stands come in handy.
The detailing and sculpt are also cleverly done. Instead of a complex and intricate paint job, the detailing is part of the sculpt itself. The result is a toy that has a high degree of definition as to its detail.
In terms of gimmicks, the fin funnels can be removed and posed. The mono-eye in the head can also be swivelled as well.
One nice gimmick to the NX Edge Style toys is that their stands can be connected, and so I decided to bring the Hi-Nu Gundam along to play with the Nightingale.
Overall, this is a very nice toy and does justice to Char’s Nightingale. Now all we need is a full size Metal Robot Damashii to go with the Hi-Gundam.
