    You know at some point the midget is gonna get his shit rocked so they'll have to cobble together whatever isn't wrecked for an important fight. I'm still not that sold on the Planetary Weapon System.

    Place your bets it gets wrecked before the midseason upgrade.
    It's not a bad concept, just .. odd. The colors are different and its weapons change but there's nothing we've seen yet that makes it stand out in each form. It's taking the "SD to Real" design theory but without the big head strapped to it's back like star-fabulous Winning or Sd Ninja Unicorn.

    Gotta have a reason for the midseason upgrade. I wonder if they'll consider Pluto a planet keke. Also calling it, Final Form is gonna be Solzero, its gonna be ggoooOOOO~LD, and it can do everything the other forms can do at the same time but better. Bonus points if it farts glitter, too.

    The SD/Real Mode concept is interesting, just clunky when realized in physical form. There were certainly refinements between Winning and Zeromaru, but like hiding combiner parts with Transformers, there's just some things you can't get away from. The "I put on fancy gloves and boots" direction makes for better cohesion, but the choice of a midget base is sorta tacky and the resulting combinations are somewhat underwhelming. And its not like this is the first time somebody's designed a combiner robot with a humanoid base and power-up armor. That shit has been big business for like 50 years.

    Ah, the Kamen Rider approach to final forms.

    I think I'm gonna skip Mudrock. I like it but just not enough to care. Penelope looks fucking amazing and I NEED that in my life. I absolutely love Nu Zeon Gundam but...yeah, the Funnel Fence isn't looking very good. An utter shame.

    I need Mudrock. NEED IT.

    Also, Nu-Zeon Gundam has a goddamn Z on the chest. A gigantic letter Z.

    There are going to be so many Goddamn Emperor Zurg themed customs out of that.

    Marsfour also looks really good in the real type colors.

    My RD Epyon came yesterday and I love it. Shame they didn't HGAC it to go with the Wing Zero but at least I have a good 1/144 scale version now.

    I call shenanigans. There's no way a Leo could sustain that level of damage without exploding :p .

    Unless its piloted by an important character like Lady Une. She managed to fight one of the Gundams (Altron?) With a Leo early in the series and she didnt immediately die in a fiery explosion.

    Penelope looks good. These HGUC Hazel / TR series designs are real knockouts though. At this rate I won't even have room for any shelf toppers. :)

    Or money for shelf toppers given only four HGUC Titans Test Team kits exist as standard retail releases.

    Forget topping off your shelves, get yourself a FLEET YARD. give yourself room for a Dendrobium, GN Arms, Narrative A-Packs and the Neo Zeong... and a Deep Striker because.. Reasons.

    Don't forget Duo took on a Serpent rocking the double dakka dakka... but he was fighting Trowa who was aiming to scathe and not kill.

    Not unless it's powered by Main Character Pilot Plot Armor!!!

    ..Meanwhile, I just got a random text message from FedEx saying "Signature required for delivery tomorrow.."
    I checked the link and it said this package was coming from Anaheim (California).

    Blue Fin really needs to adjust their notification system.. you know, maybe let me know when it ships and not when it's supposed to delivered... my RG Perfect Strike is on its way!

    Finished painting the soles of Blue Frame's feet, and touching up the paint on the hands and head.
