Mechanicore's next project:  1/100 Plastic Deep Striker!

Posted Image

I've never seen this interpretation of the Deep Striker before on any previous resin sculpts, so it looks like it'll be similar to that Thai 1/60 FA Mk-III in that it's a brand new design.

It's even more of a clusterfuck than the original design, but I'm liking what I see so far.

Mm!  I'd love to see someone tackle the EX-S / S Gundam in a great way before seeing a DEEP STRIKER.

That Xi looks completely worthy of the cash.

Looking for:

The Gustav is a cool Katsumi Fujita design, and I really like the new paint job they gave it for UC. If we get a HG Me-02R Messer at some point for completeness sake, I'm in Fujita heaven.

Speaking of Fujita, I'm really surprised even the resin kit makers have not touched the Tyrant Sword designs. Those are some really cool Fujita designs from the 80s that deserve kits.

We finally get pics of the rapid prototype:

First Edition release comes with pre-decaled "camouflage" parts (or decals?) and LED beam sabers, and only 1200 units will have this.  Not much incentive compared to the Kshatriya's first release.

The pricetag is RMB 750 (roughly $120, but we all know with shipping and middleman crap, it'll be roughly $200).  Don't know about the release date yet.


Hopefully G-System (Elyn/Mechanicore are obviously just legal disguises) learned their lesson from all the QC issues with the 1/100 Kshatriya.

Funny enough, there have been rumors that Bandai's big December MG release is the Xi, so I wonder if this will be similar to that fiasco a few years ago with the Fanstoys and Masterpiece Soundwaves?

I will not be buying this kit. Just looks like a g-system rehash. Cheap for 200.00 but rather spend 200.00 on a 1/144 resin kit.There probably really bad fit issues on the plastic but oh well easy fix for people that build plastic kits or resin kits.

@ Xavadis: Wasn't there a really expensive garage kit of the Messala Kai from Tyrant Sword?

I'd rather have more Quo Vadis stuff...

I'm getting this kit. It's actually little more than $200. I bought limited version for $165. of course it's gonna be over $200 with shipping fee.
If they still having fitting parts issue again then This will be my first and end of purchasing from them. The kit seems nice so far. I will review this when I get it.

Unlike Kshatriya, looks like this kit can pose surprisingly well:

Videos showing the assembly of the Xi gundam more like short commercials really.

Anyways its surprising to see how many parts will hold together by sheer wishful thinking

I Pre Ordered one just coz im a masochist
