Actually, the figures are already out :). Anyway, the model kits you have to
put(By snap-together construction) together, and there are not 100% color
accurate(If you feel the need to, you can paint them. The stickers don't
cover all the areas)They have quite a few advantages over the figures, such
as the fact that the Wing model kit can transform, something the figure is
incapable of doing(Unless you modify it a LOT). The kits are also slightly
taller than the figures, and I think the heads at least have better
proportion.
Now, the action figures come preassembled and fully painted, and unlike the
plastic kits they are molded in soft Vinyl, so they look a little more
rubbery. Although they lack the black panel work found on the Japanese
figures. The heads dont look as good as the models for me, and the
Sandrock's cross-crusher does'nt look quite right, but otherwise they look
pretty good. As an extra bonus, the Heavyarms comes with two sets of
gattlings, a set of one and the double gattling you see in the final
episodes of the TV series.
  But from what I've read, the 1/100 Wing kits pretty much burry the 1/144s
and the action figures.
