    I saw this at HLJ's coverage of a toy show, then found these pics today. Anyone know if these will come fully painted/molded in correct colors?

    Full Metal Panic! TSR Arm Slave Series Arbalest (Plastic model) Kotobukiya Full Metal Panic! Mode Lock Non
    New Kotobukiya action figure line "Mode Lock" debuts with FMP Arbalest | CollectionDX

    I'm thinking about getting two and making one into the Lambda Drive ON mode. But I may wait and see if they make one later on in this line.

    I wouldn't mind nabbing Kaname Chidori (with the fan) and Teletha Testarossa (and maybe Kaname's friend with the glasses) from these:

    From what I've heard and read, they're compelte, assembled, and really cheap toys. Considering the alternative is a stupidly expensive all plastic toy, they're definitely nice looking, although the hollow inner thighs are a bit of a turn off.

    I guess making them so cheap has a cost...
    Maybe a little clay will fix that problem.

    They remind me more of MSiA that you have to put together.

    Personally, I'd rather get some Sagara & Kaname figures.

    According to HLJ, "All parts come molded in white and will require painting to complete. . ."

    I guess it doesn't even have decals to cover the white. The Gernsback will be released later this month:

    I'm a really big fan of FMP, I'll take the merchandise any way I can get it at this point.

    It arrived. I only opened the box, but I can confirm that it is molded in one color. All you get is a couple of spruces and instructions. The box is thin cardboard, so it is definitely a "budget" model. I'm going to build it tonight and stand it next to the Revoltech ARX-8 for scale comparisons. I might buy another to paint.

    Sorry I don't have pictures, but I completed it and it is roughly the same size as the Revoltech.

    I always thought the Arm Slaves would make good revoltechs.

    They already did...the ARX-8. I think Alter-Sai has the license for the rest, or at least for the suits from TSR.
