Well, after reading the article and seeing more pics, I have to say that I
am still a bit disappointed at the design on a few places. IMHO, the arms
are now too thin for the heavy feel that the legs give the kit's over all
flavor. The shoulder armor now looks kinda weak. No... just looked at the
picture again the arms and shoulder looks REALLY weak comparing to the legs!
(There goes the humble part!)
Well Core, the thing I didn't like about the 1st kit was that it looked
weak... but the whole kit looked weak. So in a sick sense, it was balanced.
This guy is not balanced. Will I get it... yeah... but I will need to work
on the arms and shoulder.
For those whom have not gotten a RX78-2 for their MG collection, I say go
for it... or wait for a ver. 2.0 :D
