MG Gundam F91 (July, 3,200 yen) - The first MG with polycap-less construction, comes with a stand with a Rafflesia image
MG Gundam F90 (exhibit only)
The stuff highlighted in bold really bothers me no polycaps... how the hell does that work are we back to vintage joints and if there is one thing I know about plastic on plastic joints [THEY WEAR OUT REALL FAST](especially plastic ball joints...) maybe it's some new revolutionary joint material....
F91 and the gundam F90 MG... ok.... all I can say is they better be damn good and bigger than scale but they don't look that special... and no polycaps in a MG makes me feel like they took the oreos' outta my oreo blizzard and all I am left with is vinilla ice cream... I just think this is a risky MG to do in the first place and expirmenting w/ new stuff is not away to insure good sales bandai is losing their touch....
-EDIT- the other stuff looks kool and a astray gold amatu is the shiznit i guess the survey they did a while back really made it possible!
Master Grades have been doing away with polycaps for some time now, we've been getting "skeletal structures" with the poly's being relegated to small areas where maybe you insert something and of course the head polycap. The total loss of polycaps isn't going to cause much of a difference, but it will be interesting to see what they have in store, probably screws.
I'm so glad the Amatu is coming out! I was going to try and build one out of the Red Frame but I don't have the skills so I'm happy I don't have to do it. Now...........where's my Red Jacket!
