The basic building block of the Mugenbine line is a 9cm tall action figure dubbed a Mugenroid. It’s a tough little plastic figure and sturdy enough to withstand a few hits and falls.

Easily distinguished by the letter of the alphabet sculpted on the side of the head, most Mugenroid also have custom head sculpts and unique colour schemes. The colour schemes tend to be in the kiddie-bright range and large creations made of several Mugenroid are usually garish (if not flat out offensive) due to the riot of colours.

There are few interesting details on the figure but foil stickers have been provided to decorate the Mugenroid (and Bine parts). There aren’t any instructions for sticker placement but the photos on the back of the box make a decent guide if you’re observant enough.

Each Mugenroid is reasonably posable for a building block action figure but from what I can tell, the articulation points are mainly there to allow the figure to transform into cube mode (as well as other configurations) for the various modes.

The joints:

  • Head: hinges down for that “hanging head in shame” pose
  • Shoulders: swivel joints as well as joints to allow them to swing forward.
  • Hips: swivels and hinge combo joints that allow the legs to move forwards and backwards and perform the splits.
  • Knees: hinge joints

Most joints are of the detent variety with stops at 45 degrees to ensure parts stay in place when positioned.

In terms of connectivity, each Mugenroid has 14 pegs (two on each arm, two on the back and four on each leg) with three peg-holes (one on each foot and one on the back). The pegs on the shoulders hinge up/down 90 degrees while the pegs (and peg holes) on each foot rotate back/forward 180 degrees to allow additional connectivity options.
