Is it just me, because i think the picture of the Gundam (G)'s 100mm MG in the Gundam Base picts looks considerably shorter than the 100mm MG of the GM Striker's?

The Blue Destiny Unit 2 review by Dalong is up. God, in that comparison between the BD 2 and the RX-78, BD2 is soooooo much sexier!

i think they need to redo the RX-78-2's HGUC using the newer proportions...basically a ver Ka.

One thing they should really consider is the RX-78's shoulders. They are too narrow. I always preferred broad shoulders than narrow ones.

Nothing surprising, but the 08th MS Team Zaku has a pretty nice assortment of accessories, and I'll definitely be getting the Gelgoogs.

Get the one you like better.

I got the Oowashi because I don't like the Shiranui.

Do what I did. Get the Fullset Box. It has both packs in a 1/100 scale and comes with a nice stand. Just don't drop it or you'll be looking for some gold paint to patch up the scratches, and don't build it under a bright light, honestly, I saw spots for a few moments after taking it out of the box into that lighting. And yeah, it's a model kit not a MSiA, but I preffer them like that.

That HCM Zaku does look nice, having all those pieces of equipment as it should, but I'm not at all fond of the small scale.

Oh, and Gunota also reported that Bandai now has a Super HCM-Pro website, which probably means we'll be seeing more from that line before too long. (As in it becoming an actual line, rather than a single product.)

eh ill probably end up getting both, she usually likes the gold ms anyway. besides its not like i havent doubled up, i have every single strike based figure, coming soon strike noir hehe. and i have the freedom and strike freedom. surprisingly though i only bought the sword impulse. the other ones just didnt really grab me. maybe later when they are real cheap.

I've got Char's already preordered but I'll be picking up at least two of Johnny's if I can. I learned my lesson from his first release.

Would you be getting two so you can stick one of the backpacks on Char's Gelgoog?

Thanks for the links. I might pick up the Lancelot, just to mix things up a little bit. I know that Bandi likes to make a lot of its non-Gundam kits "non-scale", but does anyone know approximately what scale it is? 1/35? 1/72?
