Wow -- new IMS kits... x 3?   What a crazy world in which I live!
Well, it's time to leave the Gundam hobby behind!  FSS is kicking into full gear.

Nice work with the WSC Prominence, Icelatte.  I notice those springs on the shoulders -- did you add them in?

Looking for:



MG GP 01 : Face / Head

Yes, I added the springs, more out of laziness since I didnt know how to extend the resin pieces properly.  I need to steal my wife's camera to take proper pics.  1/100 IMS Terror Mirage is on deck.

It's great isn't it? I never would have thought the IMS line would expand so far, or cover so many MH I actually cared about.

Now if they can just add a Clouds Schatze/Speed Mirage, A Toll BS in 1/100, KOG AT, some kind of Engage or Junchoon variant, and maybe a Siren F or Siren D.... I'll be pretty content.

Here's a recently completed 1/144  A Toll. The scale doesn't look right when standing side by side with the Vatshu http://rsroom.blogsp...4imsa-toll.html

And I was expecting the build process of these 1/144 IMS kits will be something similar to kotobukiya kits, but I realized it is more like building those old Wave fss kits with more pieces to work with.

So this is a thing...

They're boasting about it being "FSS-Style", but it looks like every other G-System design to me.

They should look at the Silicon Tribe kit and bow theirs heads in shame.

Looks like they ran a "Lego-fy" filter over the Qbeley.

Hell ya !  I'm really happy about the expansion of this line and more of a focus on QUALITY than Gimimcks.*coughbandaicough*. These recent kits look solid, but I confess only knowing the Vatshu right now.  I am looking forward to a KOG or two - and better still, alternatives to HSGK variants of models!  They seem to be *gasp* even more detailed than their resin counterparts in some places.
