I wasn't that into EVA-01, but the Metal Build style works a lot better on 02. The Tiny functioning box cutters are really what sells me on it though.

I’m glad her trademark progressive knife is included.   It’s tiny but it really makes the difference.

They didn't even go up for sale yet on pbandai. Maybe NY is out of stock until they get their orders in? I don't know... the weapons are limited at 13 per person and backpieces 2 per.

I just checked NY and both items are listed as 'Not available'. Didn't mean they're out of stock, but I get what you're referring to because NY uses 'not available' when items are out of stock. XD

Since it's still not available to PO at P-Bandai, would it be best to use proxy site so they can order it directly once it opens up?

I'm so glad (and so is my wallet) these Option Sets are not to be taste, and I'm also not a fan of Bandai's Metal Build rendition of the Strike Gundam. bleh....

I want to see a MB Justice/Infinite Justice or Impulse, but AUD is still weak right now, so wouldn't be able to afford it alongside the steady release of DX VF-1 valks Bandai is pumping out.

Or use their notification option so you can receive an email when the item is available again.

Same here. I like Kira's unit but not their MB incarnation. But I still have it though. Hahaha! :lol:

Though I would like to have the canon Strike packs instead or Aegis or Infinite/Justice. ^_^

Oh yes a MB Aegis would be amazing. The BIG downside.... YOU MUST BUY 2 so you can display is both modes! :lol:

Secret wish is Mo Show/Poison Toys/whoever they are now release 1/72 Aegis to go along their godly Strike release.. err I mean Mecha Warrior. haha! Continue this discussion in the the 3rd Party thread.

You mean WE MUST BUY 3 so we can display all modes, right? MS, Cruiser, and Attack Mode. :lol:

Hope it's ok to answer this. I'm also not a big fan of it due to small changes that they did here and there. (e.g. Big Skirt Armor. Thin thigh and legs.) And I also don't like how they stylized the Aile Backpack.

Just some design and material choices that aren't to my taste.

• Too much diecast metal parts in places where it isn't needed (shins armor for example)

• Use of 2 different warmth greys on the main body. Cool blue grey mixed with warm grey which is overly contrasting and jarring on theses areas.

I did have this MB in hand and I looked it over, but then sold it soon after.

I think if I didn't own the MoShow Strike to compare to in person I would be less picky over such an expensive figure that didn't satisfy all my expectations and preferences.

I see. You mentioned 'oos' earlier so I assumed that you're only option is to go to those stores rather than go directly to P-Bandai. If you're in Japan, then it's practical to get it straight from P-Bandai. ;)

I really wonder if this is some kind of indication for another MB Astray sometime down the line...

I hope not.

And based on that drawing spec, it looks like a generic Astray suit.

Of course it's ok. I was just curious and will like to hear a different opinion.  :lol:

I have to agree with the two tones grey.  I had the mo show strike and sold it shortly after cause I didn't like the design cues it took from PG strike which I didn't like as well.

Well, you did miss out on P-Bandai SG so if you want one this is your next best alternative. ;)

why am i buying a red frame backpack? does the original red frame flight work with the strike?

So you don't need to take it off from your Red Astray, David. ;)

But to be honest, I'm not sure if it's the same or it has a different configuration or attachment for Strike Gundam. I'm sure anyone who has the Flight Pack from before can try if it's going to fit it on the Strike. If it is, then you just need to get the Caletvwlch Option Set. But the question is if the attachment that comes with the Caletvwlch can be attached to the old Flight Pack?

hmmm...

it has pics with red frame with both parts on pbandai as well so i'm going to assume it's the same. (hopefully no new markings)

Can't really make out what's that in the background.

I was wondering if the v-fin was deliberately over exaggerated or accidentally.  The turn red astray has a bit of a different design (more detail?) to the oversized v-fin while the red dragon is just oversized with no extra detail (yet the drawing is missing the particles/beam effect). The v-fin depicted in the drawing seems a bit more upright and resembles more of the red dragon/turn red v-fin than a regular astray v-fin which isn't so upright.
