For Gasaraki model kits (three 1:35 tactical armors
has been released as of now), it's not likely, as
least for now. Take the first in the series, the 1:35
Raiden Armor for example, it comes with 2 figurines of
Yushiro Gowa, one is in the normal stand-up pose
(dressed in military uniform) for T.A. size
comparsion, and the other (in pilot suit) is in
sitting pose to be fitted inside the T.A. It's nice to
have a poseable figurine, but the scale of the model
kits will have to be bigger to be feastible, but then,
i don't mind buying a 1:20 Red Comet with a fully
poseable Char comes with it :)
