While this is not new news, I would like to talk about it since I find it very intriguing and my interest is highly piqued. Time to poke around and speculate! :D
Point of interest #1: This seems to be a new line-up or at least a one-of-a-kind product; thankfully it is not a GFF Metal Composite (otherwise it might be more expensive).
Point of interest #2: Instead of the usual 00 Raiser, we are getting the SEVEN SWORD right off the bat! 7 SWORD! It’s like Bandai is pandering me!
Point of interest #3: At least to me, this is the best iteration of the 00 Gundam I’ve seen so far. It’s like they took the PG 00, scaled it down to 1/100, and readjusted the proportions. It’s very aesthetically pleasing!
Point of interest #4: The decals are very one-sided… Asymmetry is a strong statement and I’m liking the overall result!
Point of interest #5: This figure has only been announced around the end of October but we’ve already seen images of everything we need to see- actual production model, all the accessories, price, release date, promo photos, computer designs of it… just about everything except photos demonstrating its articulation and actual written info on its material specs.
Man… it just looks gorgeous!
Thoughts #1: I wonder… since we are getting this, does that mean we won’t be getting an MG 00 for a bit longer?
Thoughts #2: So it is called “Metal Build”… so how much metal (die cast?) is actually used? What’s the difference between this and the GFF Metal Composite line-up?
Thoughts #3: How does its articulation compares to its HG 1/144 counterpart? The above photo isn’t exactly promising… ^^; We can wait and see…
Thoughts #4: Since everything is all set for production and all, why the wait until March? o_O
Thoughts #5: Hmm… This thing will cost a little north of $140 after shipping for those who lives in the US… should I give in and pick this up? It really feels like Bandai went with the Seven Sword just for me… xD (Not to mention that I was reviewing the 00 Seven Sword/G when this was announced!)
