  1. As much as an expect disappointment this kit is, i'm likely still getting it, because frankly I don't see a better Tristan kit happening, as Bandai clearly doesn't have faith in both the kit, MS, or the show. Oh well.

    1. Don't buy it. If you buy this kit you're encouraging Bandai to pull the same crap in the future. If this kit sells bad It'll teach Bandai to not reuse parts from 13 year old kits and put a little effort in. Same with the twilight axis "show", don't encourage Bandai to make future series 3 minutes an "episode".

    2. Its bad enough to use the old Alex runner- its even WORSE that even with all the new runners they they stuck with an all-white rifle! Its virtually identical to the Nu Gundams rifle! How could they screw that up! I've never seen a kit that could have been done so easily so screwed up!

  2. Simply inexcusable. Using the key runner from a 2004 kit really hindered the articulation... plus the all-white rifle is just... inexcusable.

    On the bright side it does come with the ENTIRE A plate from the Alex...so if you like the beam rifle and gatling guns you can get some good spare parts from this...

  3. The only reason they reused the runner from the Alex was for the joints gatling gun parts. Such laziness and cheapness.

  4. Bandai reuses the Zaku 2.0 from 2007, an almost 10 year old kit for the Ver Ka TB Psycho Zaku. Almost a $100 kit, nobody cares. They release the Tristan with all new runners, some old joints from 2004 and it being a $15 dollar kit. Everyone loses their minds.

    1. [in best (Sterling) Archer voice] Right? The amount of hypocrisy that some of theses so-called "fans" spew is astonishing.

    2. To be fair most MGs have aged better than HGs released around the same time

    3. Except that Zaku 2.0 is actually a good kit, whereas Alex...isn't.

  5. I'm getting this kit because I love the hguc Alex and the design of the Tristan. Simple as that.

  6. Already builded the kit. Dont compare it psycho zaku 9700yen those kit give you a lot of insane details and weapons.I dont care about reused part but about this kit it unbearable. It has the same prices(1500yen) as alex but alex come with removable full armor!!?In this kit thay give you alex's gatling guns too but!! it can not fit in it arms!! WTF in manual it said it has 90mm gatling guns too.You have too do heavy modify too fit it in.And articulation is very limit(ball joints thighs in 2017) The front skirt can only rotate around 30° so you cannt do knee sit.Arms cannt spread on the same level as the shoulders.HG 1/144 nowadays had blend most of seams with a details.But in this kit they put seams in the center of most of parts(head,shoulder,arms,thighs,waist,weapon,backpack) Pro. good articulate ankles, face detail.
