I think the G-armor is kinda popular...the resin version to
go with the FG is simply beautiful. I have the old one, and
all I can say is that it IS NOT 1/144, bus some weird scale
between 1/144 and 1/100, in order to accomodate the old
gundam kit, which comes with it...yes, I have the original,
the HG and the FG versions...I think that they should have a
new Gundam kit, and if it means pairing it up with the
G-armor, then I say go for it.
