    At this years Tamashii Features, Bandai is showing off prototypes of two new figures in this series, MSGirl Wing Zero and MSGirl GP03 with Dendrobium.

    Now, if I didn't know any better... it looks like they have a bit of articulation.

    So that would make it a pretty cool line of new action figures. :3

    What does everyone else think?

    So they're Shinki/Figma knockoffs.
    Sweet, but I'll only get them if they have articulation and extra faces and hands.

    Busou Shinki did not invent the Mecha girl idea and Bandai has been making articulated girl figures for a while.

    Looks like Figma and Gundam merged for the kill.

    Mmm, Mecha Musume. It's one of those "oh DUH! Hello Megan!" things. So obvious, yet only to be done now. Might grab one or two to test out.

    strictly speaking, "mecha musume" only refers to the "girls in WWI/II military machine armor" stuff by shimada fumikane. <.<

    Neat i guess, but why call her Wing Zero? she's more based on EW Wing by the looks of it(and i'm still tired of the EW designs )

    It's Katoki Hajime's take on Wing Zero. Not really one of the gundams in an official show persay. It's mostly Wing Zero Custom(which Hajime did the designs for, btw), but the suit has hints of all three variations in it.
    as shown in then Master Grade kit here:
    1/100 Wing Gundam Ver. Ka
