Personally I don't like the proportions a lot, but it looks sharp and much
better than the RX-78-2. The legs are the best part of the mecha, capable
of some impressive range. The feet are two-piecers like the PG Zaku II.
The arms are also nicely articulated, except the shoulders could have used
an extra pair of joints. Compared to the MG Dom, however, its arms pale
by comparison since the Dom's arms are a whole lot more flexible, not to
mention five independent fingers really rock, which the Mk-II lacked.

The mecha by itself looks good and poses well, the problems don't surface
until you start playing with weapons and accessories. It would really suck
if they developed the kit seperately - mecha first, and all the weapons are
just afterthoughts?

If you really like the design, get one. Maybe you should just get the
Super Gundam, so you don't end up buying 2 Mk-IIs if you got to have the
G-Defensor. Personally I think the GP-01Fb gives you more bang for the
buck, since it comes with a transformable Core Fighter II.
