WORDS FROM THE MODELER
"After completing this kit, I must admit I really like the Strike Gundam from Gundam Seed. Sure it’s “Seed”, but it’s not over the top like most of the other Seed Mobile Suits. The Strike is a basic and well-rounded unit and is not an elaborate design, but still more modern than say the RX-78-2.
The Strike Gundam is a general-purpose/multi-role unit. It’s a Gundam at the core armed only with 2 Armor Schneider Combat Knives and some head-vulcan cannons. The “Striker-Packs are what make this unit “multi-purpose”. Basically the Strike has multiple hard-points to attach various “upgrades”. There’s the Aile pack which is basically a flight back-pack, shield, and beam rifle, the Sword pack which gives the Strike greater melee capabilities with a large beam-sword and cable-claw dealie, and the Launcher pack which is your basic BFG and rocket launchers. Pretty nifty design that way. -
