Worst case, just mold the face mask and make a few castings to work on so as to preserve the original. Given what I've seen and read from the IMS kits, they require some actual modeling skill to finish properly due to some sketchy details and fit issues so a tiny bit of re-working on the face mask shouldn't be a huge factor.

By the way, I am selling some FSS originals and recasts in the trading section. I have some eva kits as well. Please check it out!

I don't like the crazy grin, either. But maybe it gives it character, and I think that they would include vented type mask.

Looks like it comes with an optional facemask to hide the grin. The face with the face mask looks really weird though. Not thin enough. I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too... Do you guys think this will reuse any part of the frame from the LED Mirage?

Still can't get over how much better these old designs look, compared to the new GTM style stuff...

I think I finally understand where Gothicmade comes from- it's Nagano's latest challenge for the GK sculptors, and he purposely made them as frail and ugly as possible so that not only would they be utter hell to sculpt and cast, but they wouldn't sell well either to dedicated fans. It's like a cruel joke, and for even Akira Tani to call it challenging, he may very well have succeeded. Maybe that's why he gave permission to Volks to make the IMS line- because he'd already given up on protecting his old designs by then.

And if these were new designs from a new faction, it would be one thing... but replacing all the classic designs with this unpleasant looking stuff? No thanks... I'll just pretend FSS ended a while back and this new storyline is.... something else.
I WILL be curious to see if IMS series tackles some of the new designs. But I'd prefer they stick with the old stuff. Ashura Temple, Auge, Clouds Schatze, A Toll, Junchoon/Engage series, and Siren A/D/F please!

Would like to see more Mirage machines in general.
