I completely agree with everything you say about the Gundam Mark II, you
summed it up much better than I ever could.

It's too weak to support the shield even without the ammo clips on the shield.

Yup, and the bazooka always fall off too.

The problem is I don't always want the headphone vulcan on the head... do
you mean applying glue to make the "slot" it fits in tighter? I might try

This is definitely a huge problems. I've seen people suggesting small
metallic coil springs, but I've never seen ones that are that long.
> - bazooka clip and beam rifle don't like to stay clipped on the side skirt
This is definitely my biggest complain, plus the side skirt armour don't
even stay on the stupid thing after applying glue because it's a poly joint
of a different shape!
> - the beam saber handle doesn't stay well on the backpack storage rack.
I actually found this tolerable...

Yeah, I am still thinking about whether I should purchase the Super Gundam.
> >And oh yeah were did you get the Samurai Gundam 1:60 scale kit?

There were 2 different G-Gundam 1:60 kits, it's the one that is not the G
Gundam with clear see through orange hands. I thought the box called it
"Neo Samurai" or something, I guess I must have remembered it wrong.
