I've had a few baddies, too. Tallgeese II, for example. Talk about
re-releasing kits with extra parts. At least the GM Sniper was molded in a
completely different color and had a cool gun. Rising Gundam, which I
believed was awesome (when I was 6). That was about 6 years ago (guess my
age, I dare you) around the time of Gundamn Wing's original airing in Japan.
Anyhoo, back to the Rising.... It had decent posability, great plug-in
weapons (though they had to be painted). I mean, you don't see plug-in Uzis
on a regular Gundam (excluding Alex, but the guns weren't Uzis :), do ya? My
faves? GM Sniper, Alex, Heavyarms Custom, Serpent Custom, Zaku III/Custom,
and the Kampher, excepting a few color quibbles.
