    - "You two, pair up and head out. We want to test the interaction between the smaller and larger Gamma units in the field"

    The Cosmo Marines Gamma Maneuver Suit from DA-30 is compared with the new Tactical Mover Gamma Versaulter...

    Adding: Just a group shot of several Cosmo Marines sets... Seems odd that the TriDigger is the largest in that subgroup. This configuration of him isn't at full hight, but... I call that it's "Berzerker Mode" used when there are numerous small enemies.

    Sometimes I can't bring myself to justify the cost and so hesitated. The same thing happened when I saw Evol Gigantor for 70,000 yen, and now it's going for even more.

    I am keeping an eye on Jungle, but they don't update as often.

    Yea. Evol keeps just going up. Waiting with this toy line is not your friend at times.

    I've made peace with not buying it. Honestly, I only wanted it for the Evol parts, since I prefer the original Gigantor colors, but even Gigantor is a question mark for me since I'm hoping they do a third version with the light Grey colors.

    Main plan now is to get a number of light grey Waruders, and getting DA-54&92.

    Not sure when they’ll go up or how they’ll be packaged yet, but it looks like they’re giving us the option to cut the steel sheets out with scissors (by surrounding them with a thinner material). It looks like they’re not all straight edged molds, so this makes it easier to avoid mistakes.

    They showed something bit quicker than I expected so quite happy with this development!

    As always if anyone needs help getting them overseas, I’m just a PM away ;)

    I like that they're leaving more space between them now.

    Question, do either of the tactical carriers come with a versaulter suit, or are those pictures just to show cross play compatibility?

    Just demonstrations; no suit included.

    -------------------------------------------

    Not mine. Just saw this posted by user micro_gunner on Instagram and wanted to share. Such fun and has such a cool vintage Microman style. There are some parts used in unique ways, too. It just does a great job showing the creative possibilities if we don't limit ourselves...

    The exchange rate is brutal right now. Been bouncing between 67-69 cents to 100 yen.

    At that price, figured I can stick to domestic. PO'd 2.

    Speaking of exchange rates. Is the Tactical Carrier up on AMJ?

    Decided to switch my Diatrains preorder to TCP. They’re close by so it’ll end up being more convenient, apart from that domestic price being great.
