1/144 or 1/100?

The 1/144 series are unique in that it is the only Gundam kit series to
feature a skeletal frame that's idential for most of the suits, therefore
the only difference are the armors you slap on the outside. This allows you
to kitbash and build variants that are only limited by your imagination.

The 1/100 series are limited to only the Gundams, with the exception of the
GunBlastor and the Zollidia. The Gundams are HG kits, while the two non-
Gundam kits did not have any parts with System Injection, thus not qualifying
for the HG mark.

If you bought the 1/100 V2, then I am sorry to say that you should have
bought the V2 Assault or V2 Buster Gundam (also available in 1/144 scale).
The V2 was the basic/plain version, while both the Assault and the Buster
are cooler upgraded versions. The only thing good about the V2 I can think
of now is the beauty of its simplicity. However, if you got the 1/60 scale
V2 then it's a pretty cool, since it can fully transform and separate into
different parts/vehicles.
