Just went through the 2nd issue of Dengeki Hobby - what a kick-ass issue!
The cover feature was Char's mobile suits, including RickDom (from the novel)
and Gundam (from Giren's Ambition). Too bad they didn't have any built
Nightingale. There's another "light up" modification of the PG Gundam with
a switch panel for all the lights. This guy did a much better job with the
beam saber than the Bandai Custom Set #1 people did.

Anyway, my point was that the SOC RX-78 diecast toy pictures you guys saw
were actually scanned from this issue. The designers went for maximum
flexibility at the joints, as you can see from the pictures. Final price
is undecided yet, but they are aiming at keeping it under 5,000 yen
(IMPOSSIBLE!) since it is a 1/144 scale toy. Expected release is early
summer of 1999.
