  2. Where's the Gilda?! Or the Garm Rodi?! Why won't you make those Bandai?!

    1. Not all surprising because Bandai's through making "new" product for IBO. Gilda would require a frame rework since the Hugo has backwards-double-jointed legs, and Garm/Spinner Rodis would need an ENTIRELY NEW frame, as the Man Rodi doesn't even have one. Not hopeful for a Hloekk Graze, either.

      But considering their recent pattern of Arbrau/SAU (or Earth-based) war "Twin Sets," they may push out a Gilda/Hloekk Graze set if they can muster the resources to provide those kit reworks, although making something with that many new parts a P-Bandai would be ridiculous.

  3. Wow. I remember people saying they'd wait for the P-Bandai release of the Scharfrichter, and I laughed at them... bought the paint and everything to make my own, too...

    And they even threw in a Landman Rodi to make it easier to get (outside of the Tekkadan set). Damn. And here I already spent my holiday budget on the Graze Ground Type Twin Set... regardless, FUCK YOU AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!

  4. Well. Typed a 3-paragraph response detailing my thoughts on this set. Clicked "Sign Out" because that button was placed CONVENIENTLY where the "submit" button SHOULD be under the text box. *sigh*, well here's the gist:

    Geirail (important one in this set) will have poor color-separation on the shoulders and hoverpod, due to the nature of the runners and the parts, meaning grey frame-bits on shoulders (maybe even the blades) and the tan on the hoverpod will not be reproduced. Disappointing, I would rather paint my own if the costs weren't so prohibitive (I actually bought the paint colors for it, just not the kit or parts yet).

    Landman Rodi included is smart, making an appeal to this set for the Landman to go with the Tekkadan Set version, or making a cheaper and practical alternative to that big set.

    I spent my entire holiday budget in advance, mostly towards the Graze Ground Type Twin Set along with a couple new Origin Zakus, so I can't really pre-order this set (although I really, really want to, bad colors and all) at the moment.

    1. Yeah, I've hit the sign out button a few times myself.

      I agree the Landman Rodi is a smart inclusion... But I kinda wish they had included something more... The Tekkadan set came with unique weapons and equipment for everything except the Landman Rodi.

      Its kinda funny, my brother and I have been collecting the kits and option sets to create these MS, and now Bandai is releasing them proper, if P-Bandai exclusives. Kinda wish I had known that they would do something like this sooner so I wouldn't have had to go through all the trouble...

    2. Exactly. I already bought my Geirail paint, luckily I held off from buying the parts (although I'm starting to think I should get them anyway) so I could in THEORY get this set, but I wasn't waiting for this; didn't think it would happen; Bandai is long overdue for this set and the Graze Ground Types (the episodes where these featured together are 9 months old!!!). You can't be blamed for your diligent investments!

    3. Oh yeah, and about Landman Rodi, your idea of including more for that would make this set a better deal, and unique for its own Rodi!

      I'm thinking maybe an open hand (or two) for a couple of included grenades, and/or a blast effect for the Hammer Chopper when flying toward the Hashmal, and/or an alternate chest piece with a gash/smashed cockpit to represent Aston's wrecked version (they could even promote the McGillis Graze Ritter alongside this set).

      Still would have made more sense to make a Landman Rodi Twin Set (perfect counterpart to the Graze ground Type Twins) with all these accessories, then make a Scharfrichter Twin Set (identical) or Galan Mossa's geirail and Scharfrichter set separately, to better match all the appropriate Mobile Suits.

  5. I've already made ground type Graze, but I ended up using a blue that matches the Standard Graze Ritter after McGillis tool over. Still looks good, but not accurate.

    Already made two Landman Rodis, and before I started the third I bought the Tekkadan set.

    Already made a Richter with paints and parts for the second.

    The costs of parts and paint was about the same as the twin set here.

    I honestly don't mind the cost of making my own and it was a good learning experience. As far as the general p Bandai rage... I'm fine with this. It just doesn't make sense to me to release individual parts for the variants in the first place if you're just going to release them as limited kits, though.

    Well it does. It's basically double dipping in preperation to release the limited complete ones. Get to suck in the modders and people who want variant parts, then reuse the molds to make a full limited kit and get everyone else.

    If they release the grunt versions of the Ritter Ground types I'll probably pick a few of those up. McGillis forces in season two basically don't exist in kit form.
