  The 1/100 V-Gundam _Gundam_ kits are not alot of fun. SI-molded to be
sure, they sacrifice mobility and cool-looks for the ability to
'transform' into their various aircraft-like modes. They don't actually
transform mind you, so much as swap-out various parts and weapons. They
all lack waist joints for example, and always struck me as being rather
fragile, unlike their sturdy and cool looking 1/144 companions. It's also
important to note that the 1/100 kits come with BRIGHT YELLOW POLYCAPS!
Anyone who's tried knows that PCs are a pain in the butt to paint, and in
these kits Bandai picked the all-time WORST color to make them!
