C'mon man, where's your modeling spirit? :D

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.

Actually, I find the lips on the terror to be wicked.  I will even like a tongue sticking out.  Perhaps that will be Decors' MH.  Suit him.  Why not?  But well, just individual preference.

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!

*scratches chin*

Innnnteresting kit.

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

Looking for:

I prefer it with the grin, personally. Isn't that how it showed up in the manga? With the grin?

Very high-res and detailed images of the Terror from WonFes:

Spoiler

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?

Yep... I will need to buy one of those.

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.

I don't mind skinny and frail looking. I love the Yen Xing and Jagd Mirage. But the GTM stuff is just something else... some of the designs are, dare I say it, just ugly. The weird body proportions with odd elbow and knee joints don't help, especially with the arms held way out at the sides. And why tiny shoulders on everything??? Most of the designs look so.... bottom heavy.

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!

How about a Luminous Mirage as a slightly more practical and likely choice?

Would like to see more Mirage machines in general.

Someone sold a Gothicmade GK as well at C3, probably the first kit from the new designs:
