Gundari’s head is what gives the figure his fierce personality. His three glaring open eyes and gleaming fangs do a pretty good job of that. But he also has this really great fiery and wild looking hair. I do wish they would have gone with small metal rings for his earrings, but the sculpted/painted on ones look ok.
Like I mentioned earlier, his articulation is pretty amazing. Swivel/hinge Revolver joints make up his head, neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees, and ankles. There are also Revolver joints connecting the back three pieces of his robe, and a double Revolver connecting his halo to his back. His only non-Revolver joint is a double ball joint between his chest and abs.
Gundari comes with a nice assortment of accessories. There’s a spear, wheel, axe-like thing, and a small double sided trident. He also comes with a small rocky base with two lotuses (both with Revolver joints) for him to stand on. Then there’s the typical orange Revoltech box and translucent boomerang stand.
Almost all the previous Buddhist figures come with a nice assortment of alternate hands, but Gundari only has the ones that are already on his arms. While you can still swap them out between each other, I do wish he had a few that weren’t pre-posed in accessory holding or mudrā gestures.
This line consistently impresses me with its sculpted details and articulation, but I really feel Gundari takes it to a new level with the execution of his eight arms. A figure like this is rare in the action figure world, but when one comes along it’s pretty amazing to behold. I’d really love to see this design replicated in Revoltech’s Sci-Fi line for a Harryhausen Kali figure. She’d make an amazing General for my Skeleton Army.
