    Yes, Narrative has so many cool designs. Shezarr Type, Sinanju Stein, Narrative Gundam. Lots.of cool potential. What a missed opportunity.

    After the bad MG release and mediocre HG release, Bandai finally did Heavy Gundam some justice in RS line.

    This figure looks great and loaded with accessories

    Also comes with a sweet sweet all-new bazooka

    Also, anyone know a good Japan based shop that still let you pre-order the exclusive Vierrss?
    Both Nippon-Yasan and Anime Export have stopped taking order and the options I found on google search feel a bit iffy.

    I’ll hold off for a tampo version.

    I would give my left pinky for a Jesta, but they did do a lot of the MS from Unicorn. Like 12 or 13 (not counting variations). That's a lot better than the measly 2 we got from Narrative. That's all I was saying.

    Tampo version would be great but they are usually some sort of exclusive and more expensive.

    Opened the Jager that came with the Heavy Gundam
    Another great looking figure.

    The articulation is not that great though. The waist has limited horizontal movement in exchange to faithful recreation of the original design which is fine to me.
    However, it lacks the swivel joints for thighs. This really limits the leg articulation and that's just unfortunate.

    the jager looks so damn good i can't justify the purchase of any other gelgoog version (until the marine comes out)

    That’s a bummer; I love this design but am here for the articulation as much as anything. Hopefully a marine version will work better.

    There’s loads of releases and potential releases I’d like from this line, but most of them are p Bandai material (MSV is my love), and given the competition for my wallet (mafex comic figures, legends and mainline tfs, and now gi joe and mcfarlane dc - although I only cherry pick those too) I’ve only ended up with one figure so far. But should they do a GM II, I will be pushing old people and kids out of the way to get one!

    Yup I’ll pay more for the exclusive when and if it happens. That Jager is a great looking release. I think it’s the best Gelgoog so far.

    Yeah, the Jager didn't really do it for me. Articulation is super important to me and the Jager just felt like a big step backwards. I was also annoyed it didn't come with a closed hand option and lacked accessories. I was super pumped to get it but upon opening my reaction was "meh". :-/

    Got my MRD Shinkiro in today. Rather lovely thing. Has a few posability issues inherent to its design, mostly how the shoulders are designed. Would have enjoyed even more shield segments and joints for them but as it it's a rather solid release.

    I had no idea they made a RD for Byarlant custom. It's my favorite suit from the series. Anyone have it? How is it?

    I have it. It's a really nice display piece but it's not as solid as the regular RD's. It feels like it's made out of a more delicate material. I believe RD's use PVC and the Byarlant Custom feels closer to the plastic Gunpla are made from. It has a LOT of articulation, so you can get some really dynamic poses from it.

    Looks like it will be a nice update from the Revo one (which is still a great toy)
    I love Ghost in The Shell and only wish these companies would make more stuff from the original movie or manga. An SOC tank from the movie would be excellent! But until then, I’ll take these.
