On the other hand, they shouldn't be very heavy. And heavy things are usually more costly to ship.

Shipping for a couple hobby mags costs me more than shipping for a box of 2-3 Master Grade size kits.

no difference except the launcher, so it's much better to buy the 3100 version.


**edit**

I take that back, after double checking, The 7777 version came with two types of swords and scabbards, each having different patterns on the hilt and scabbard ("J" and "K" runners, the instruction book of 7777 version tells you to pick which ever one you like to use for the kit). The 3100 just have the "J" runner only. The Patraqushie Mirage kit also use the K Runner swords. You can see the different hilt and scabbard on the volks website. I still think the 3100 is a better buy now as the buster launcher it self was sold for yen2500 back then. but your preference may vary. I just hope the new boxes aren't as flimsy as the old ones.

We made a compairison these days and it looks like the shoulder armor, arm shields and the external engine where newly molded.

no the difference between the 3100 and Over~7777ver. Sorry if it sounded like the re-released kits would be newly moulded. Would be nice if they do changed some details. It would be fine if the joints were made in a better polycarb and the metal parts in Polystyrol. Without the metal parts it could save us some Yen on shippingcosts. :P
