Overall views. Force is almost a recolor, except it has a pair of antennae which I mistakenly kept splayed wide open, different wings and tail, and different weapons so I’ve skipped the close-up photos.

With its weapons. Like the Zero Shield, the F on the Force Blades is sculpted.

The tail on this guy is the weapon form handle and has a piece on the end that is too loose and falls off easily.

It also has the same articulation limitations as its brother unit.

ATTACK FUNCTION
BIGBANG SLASH.

The pistols fit snugly in the semi-open hands.  IMG_7104 - Copy

Weapon Form. Transformation is similar but the only partsforming required is attaching the huge clear green blade. Like its brother unit, the weapon form handle has a joint which I think is to prevent breakage due to its immense weight.

ATTACK FUNCTION
00 SWORD.

Making the figure hold the weapons properly is a pain since you have to deal with two stands at the same time.

ATTACK FUNCTION
METEOR BREAKER.

You can display both weapon forms at the same time using both stands and all the adapters.

The Z Mode toys are excellent in general and this one is no exception, but with the plastic models capable of the same gimmicks, the price of this one is a drawback.
