    Seeing as how this line of figures is ramping up, I figured it needed it's own special thread.

    I've got to say, that as a spiritual successor to the MSiA line (in my opinion), at first... I was kinda "eh" about it. But now that I'm delving deep into many of the animes that the various figures are about, I'm ecstatic about this line!

    Now, being Bandai, the biggest subline is OBVIOUSLY Gundam, with the <Side MS> tagline. The biggest contributor to the line is Gundam 00 Season 2, and it looks like the line is going to leak into the first season with the release of Gundam Exia. Gundam 00 isn't the only series to be featured in the <Side MS> subline, as Gundam Crossbone X-1 and X-2 Kai are also going to be released, along with the Turn X from Gundam Turn A.

    The other series featured are <Side LFO>/Eureka 7, <Side KMF>/Code Geass and coming soon... <Side AS>/Full Metal Panic!

    I'm really excited, because there are actually some figures I want to get from all of the series. 00 Gundam, Nirvash Spec 2, Lancelot Albion and ARX-7 Arbelest!

    This toyline can only get better as time goes on. I can't wait to see where it goes.

    EDIT: 3/4/2010 - Here's a link to a list of ALL the releases! http://z11.invisionfree.com/Gundam/index.php?showtopic=815

    Oh man, I'm sunk if Bandai gives us Mobile Suits from the "One Year War" series! LOL! In fact I'm surprised that they haven't gave us an RX-78 yet and Gundam 0 doesn't count! :D

    Looking forward to the Exia, wondering why Tamashii has yet to make any RX-78 variant, and man I want a Turn-A.

    MS: Mobile Suit

    LFO: Light Finding Operation

    KMF: Knightmare Frame

    AS: Arm Slave

    The initials are just what the robots are called in their respective series'

    My first Damashii's will be the Nirvash and TheEND. Looking forward to getting them.

    Yeah, the reason why I didn't pick up the Turn X is because I want the Turn A too!

    If you mean the RX and 0 - sorry, its like comparing G1 Optimus Prime with any other Optimus! :p

    LFO is Light Finding Operation? ... Didn't know that.

    Knew about the others, though.

    Surprisingly, I think I'll get the Arbalest first, when it's released, of course.

    Agreed on the Turn A...my Turn X has nothing appropriate to menace.

    Really looking forward to the Crossbones and the Armslaves.

    I've got TheEND and Nirvash Spec. 2 on order at HLJ right now. Won't get them for awhile, though, as I'll just wait 'til they ship with MG Exia.

    On one hand, I'm hoping for a KMF Guren SEITEN release in the near future. That thing was a house. On the other, it'll just make me want more Knightmares, and a lot of the key ones have long been sold out (Zangetsu, Gawain, and Lancelot Albion has had most of its preorders filled).

    More specifically:
    Shinrokou
    Lancelot Albion
    Gawain
    Arbleast(Want this with a PASSION)

    Considering:
    Turn X
    Zangetsu

    I'm a big fan of the Code Geass Knightmares, I'm trying to get both Gloucester's {Cornelia's & Guilford's} but they're expensive & hard to find.

    I should've got Shinkirou, Lancelot Albion, Akatsuki, & Zangetsu when they were like 20% off retail price..but nooo :( 
    I'm looking forward to trying to get The Knight of One's Galahad that's with the Model Works book...can't wait for that one.

    I got the Revoltech while back, so I'm pretty happy with that. it satisfies my Laevatein needs FMP's one of my favorite anime series so it's a definite must buy for me...and good timing too, because I would've gotten the Mode Lock kit.

    Yeah, I was looking at the Mode Lock kit/figure too. Then something in my mind told me to look further into any other figures, and sure enough, I see a Robot Damashii Arbalest.

    My MSiA's were always sort of loose, so I prefer the Robot Damashii over them. Newer usually means better quality so eh.
