Universal PG Action Stand
I've received something interesting from my supplier friend yesterday, the long awaited PG Universal Action Base!
Manufacturer: 飓风 (Hurricane)
Price: Usual price RM50 (Message to me for availability)
I start assembling it right away and complete it within 10 minutes, and here's my quick review.
This action base is actually a duplicate of the PG 00 Raiser action base. There are 4 connectors especially made to fit 00 Gundam and 0 Raiser, but 2 of them could be used to hold up other PG, 1/60, MG and 1/100.
Although it says Universal... some small modding (blu-tag or super-glue) would be needed for older PG as they do not have any built-in hold for the connectors... however, PG Astray Red Frame fitted nicely as per test result from my other friend ;)
There are also 3 pieces of action base 1 connectors comes together with this kit but I have not find a way to utilise them yet :p
As for the price point, it seems to be on the high side but I came across people selling the original Bandai (that comes with PG 00 Raiser) for around RM130-150 so this is a viable replacement with the similar quality ;)
Plastics quality: The plastic quality is good.
Snap-fit: The parts snap-fitted perfectly.
Sturdiness: The action base is very sturdy!
Conclusion: Something for your consideration if you can afford the money ;)

2 Forms of the Action Stand
This action base can be made into 2 forms exactly the same as the PG 00 Raiser action base ;)

I am very disappointed with the overweight PG Wing Gundam Zero Custom therefore I do not pose with it :p Generally, this action base have no issue holding up a PG or 1/60 but I do recommend minor modification or just simply applying some blu-tag ;)

I super-glue the connector to the crotch of my PG Wing Zero and finally got it to balance with all the Wings... The issue is not with the PG Action Stand but lies with the design of PG Wing Zero Custom itself!
