  1. Behold! Two frames of television will become a sixty dollar model kit!

    Wish they'd put the effort into making a HG Revive or a MG 2.0 of this instead of slightly tweaking old kits.

    1. Finite resources. Any effort devoted in one location is detracted from another. So Bandai make allocations of manpower and budget based on expected returns.

    2. The HGUC is a decent kits. It don't need Revive.

  2. With all the Char's Counterattack releases within the past few years, I'm honestly surprised that they're doing this instead of a Re-GZ 2.0 or a Re-GZ ver KA.

  3. ...huh. Can't say I expected this.

    Not really sure the small changes are worth it, though. The only complaint I have about the original MG is that the hands are absolute trash and can't hold it's rifle.

    1. I saw it coming a mile away. Building the MG ReGZ Custom as I type this out, half of the new plates are labeled "Re-GZ Custom" but the other half are just "Re-Gz". I think the Custom looks really sharp, but the balljoint hips and the simple construction of the foot is pretty disappointing. I'd pickup the new Re-GZ if I could get it at a decent price.

    2. If you like ReGZ, then you will definitely love this "upgraded" kit. There's a lot of things that are fixed. The both of the shoulder and hip joint is changed, similar to the current MG articulation.

      The mold itself are also made so that the torso look better and the head doesn't seems too big compared to the old one.

    1. Yeah, perfectly understandable. This suit was probably on screen for about TWO FRAMES of animation. It appeared in the Ra Cailum's hangar near the beginning of episode 4 the first time we see the Tri Stars' Jestas launch at Dakar.

      Literally blink or you'll miss it.

    2. A spare RE-GZ happens to be stored on the Ra Cailum during Unicorn

  5. This one kinda piques my interest. It kinda looks like the problem with the hands have been solved and since my problems with the torso are fixed. Plus, I'm in love with the colors.

  6. I probably would have gotten this instead of the Re-GZ Custom had it come out first. Oh well.

  7. I'm glad that they were able to give the RE-GZ the 1.5 update.

  8. Geez Bandai, just make a 1.5 Re-GZ if you're gonna improve the mold via variants!
