    These look really nice and I've expressed interest in using them for kitbashing, but want to know how well they hold up compared to Gundams, Macross, and other non-TF mech toys and kits. What's the articulation like? How's the material?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've got a few (stopped building them a year ago?)and here's my opinion on them:

    i) "finish" on the kits are very good - can rival that of the the Gunda MG kits. They don't need painting to look good;
    ii) they're smaller than the MG kits - well at least the older ones I got such as Mirage etc
    iii) very tedious to built. The time and effort to build one = 2 MG kits
    iv) small parts
    v) some of the parts tend to fall off like my mirage's "lights" at the arm
