Volks MM Eleshis

Post by Sheizzel » Mon Jul 17, 2006 5:07 pm

I recently got as Eleshis and was kind of disappointed to find the symbol that was supposed to be engraved into its left shoulder to be missing . So was the mirage knight number on its shield. However, I had no problem seeing both the symbol and number on other Eleshis from various sites...So can anyone who has this kit confirm this with me? Thanks.

EDIT: Hmm...I just found out both the symbol and number were sculpted onto the kit.

I guess Volks' reissue of the Eleshis is made to look like the Eleshis which had the color change during the Majestic Stand...

That would be very disappointing. :(

I'd also consider that as deceptive marketing on the part of HLJ, seeing as they have used the same item pic as when the Eleshis was first released. On the other hand, HLJ probably isn't even aware there is a difference between the orignal release and this new release. So maybe not deceptive marking, just poor marketing. For a 17,000 yen item I would expect a better effort from HLJ.

A quick look at Volks' website makes it obvious that this is a slightly different Eleshis...

Isn't there a transparent ver. of this kit? How did they fix this bug in the transparent ver.?

The transparent version wasn't reissued, so there's no need to fix it.

I should have realized the reissue of the Eleshis doesn't come with the shoulder emblem and number on the shield sculpted on just by looking at the pictures on the box. I know there wasn't much of a chance, but I even tried to look for decals inside the box, but I didn't find any of course :P . All Volks did was left the color combination for the shoulder emblem in the last page of the instruction manual...
