Yes already have mine.  Not satisfied with the product. Look n feel very cheap. Loosen here n there. This manufacturer don’t really care much  as compare to other 3rd party.  I noticed most 3rd  party were very good at copying or altering a bit the original product but not producing on their own original. But this is the worst case, because even Vanishing Trooper better than this. Hopefully Kshatriya & Zaku not facing the same problem.

Quite nice effort from MClub.

I'd still get the official MCGFF version from Bandai first as it's the right thing to do. If I wasn't able to get one at retail / near retail price, then I'd consider getting the MClub release.

Doubt I would get too. Not sure if I need that much Char Zaku in my life.

Can MClub please make some GMs? Like the 0083 Armored GM or Unicorn Jesta? :p

is there even an official one announced in the metal build or metal composite lines?

I feel if Bandai is releasing a MB of a particular release, and we are able to obtain it first hand from a retailer (not scalp price), we should support Bandai and buy that over a 3rd party release. It's only fair if we've bought the official Bandai version we have the option to also own a 3rd party release of the same toy (unless the original is still available to purchase at SRP - which is highly unlikely for GFFMC / MB releases).

Grey area when it comes to units that Bandai have not announced or different scale.

wonder when they go on preorder (i have never done a metal gffmc....i only have the rx-78-2 for the origin version) and if it'll be crazy.  the regular green one looks great too!

No info on that yet , but it will most likely be sold out fairly quick.  More info will be up at the metal build thread soon

Gundam Central has a banner saying they'll have it in April.

Hey JakCrow. When you ordered, did it actually says 'In Stock'? I haven't bought anything from AliExpress so I'm having second thoughts and wait from the other sites where I buy my KO MB Gundams.

Thanks. :)

Thanks sir! I'm hoping that the usual suspects can carry this before I pull the trigger at AliExpress.

Wow! There’s no way that’s the MG Sazabi ver.Ka kit besides it, right? Coz if it is, then that Kshat is so freaking huge. :shok:

Opened my first ko metal build, strike freedom sapphire color version.  Comes with optional red trim parts, a really nice touch, looks better than the sapphire blue.

Feels pretty good in hand, quality is just a notch or two below my authentic one.

Shoot! Now I want one. :wub:

I'm just waiting on the review if the forearm armor is removable but looks like it's not. But atleast the Balaena Beam Cannon doesn't look like a p3nis like in the MG Freedom V2 kit. :lol:

Haha I also want to remove the forearm armor.

 

There is only one seamline on the crotch, the rest seem acceptable quality to me.

Is there any store that this is available? ShowZ is still sold out and GMC doesn't have it except for that banner.

Preview/Review of the MC/MuscleBear/Anaheim Factory Kshatriya

This is looking better than the Steel Legend figure with a lot more details than the other figure. It may be the one to beat now.

Doesn't look removable and from the vid the paintwork needs improvement. Looks uneven, blotchy and many obvious air bubbles on the surface. Not sure if general production pieces will have improved QC.
