The Grip Jumbo G5.

The sentence itself makes me smile.

Alen is right. This toy is perfection. From the classically painted artwork to the understated details and lack of any superfluous decoration… It has been written about far better and more thoroughly than I am able, so I will simply say, there are few times Popy got it wrong. This is one of those times for me.

If you are going to buy a Gatcha Phoenix, this is the only one you need consider. When given the choice buy the Bently, not the Chystler 300 .

  1. Totally agree Josh. For vintage, there is no better G5 (and I must upgrade my beater at some point).

    As a big Gatcha fan, of my 3 modern toys, one of them had to be the Uni5 Phoenix. THAT is the modern day perfect itteration of that ship. Alen was correct there also – unless some company can make a flying version, there is no need to produce another.
