Micro Review: Collection V Gungans from Micro Machines: Star Wars Episode I by Galoob
Includes: 2 standing Gungans, 3 booma Gungans, and 3 spear wielding Gungans.
Original release date: 1999
Original Retail Price: $5-$8 dollars
* The first Gungan is a standard Otolla Gungan standing at attention and wielding a spear. These are some pretty cool guard Gungans and they'd look great hanging around the Naboo Temple Ruins playset. These guys all have little holes in the base so they can attach to the pegs on the Episode I playsets.
* The booma wielding Gungans have their right arms extended backwards to toss a Gungan booma grenade with the assistance of an atlatl. Again, the detail and paintwork is pretty spot on for such a tiny figure and these guys look awesome as part of a Gungan army. This guy might be my favorite from the set.
* The third and final Gungan in this set is also preparing for battle. He's getting ready to toss a deadly spear at some unlucky Trade Federation Battle Droid. I love the pose here as this Gungan is perfectly set for battle. Just really impressive stuff!
