The Strike Rouge… as a model, it’s basically the Aile Strike in pink. It was a great model during the time it was released but there are some quirks to be addressed.
I have a feeling that the MG Strike was a prototype/testbed for the MG Freedom as they both use very similar inner frames and architecture but all the quirks in the Strike’s body were fixed in the Freedom.
This model was a very easy build; the parts are straightforward and simple. I explicitly remember completing this model in a matter of just a few hours. It was that simple of a MG.
Even though the model on the box might look impressive in the ways it can bend its knee and all that but it’s actually almost unstable and near flimsy. Over time the leg joints becomes a little more loose (they weren’t very stiff when first completed to begin with) and top-heavy problems might occur but not serious. The model will still stand but will gradually get pulled back. The quirks I mentioned were how some parts like the ankle “cuffs” and skirt armors aren’t attached by polycaps, making them very loose. Standing poses are a bit hard with this model due to the cuffs and awkward feet. This model is better in aerial poses. This model is fine in other aspects overall.
If you want a MG Aile Strike then grab the Strike Rouge…it’s the same thing but as a model, it’s more interesting to look at because it’s pink xD
