I was fingering a box at a shop today. At 800 Yens and considering the
size, it's a great deal. Too bad they don't put in some swap in gimmicks
like Guncannon's missle pods. They could have (should have) put in Kondo
style AA guns for arms.

But that's to be expected right? Even with the more expensive and more
detailed Tamiya armour kits, the tracks are molded as a single strip. If
you don't glue the wheels onto the chassis, you can push down on the
finished model and when you push the tank around (remember I was 10 at the
time :) you can make the track move. But of course if you have to glue
the wheels then there's no way.

Ugh. the first figure of Hayato, and they screw it up. No wonder he's got
an inferiority complex.
