Thanks a bunch! WSC Prominence is a must have for me!

MG treats FSS with the respect it deserves^^.

The back of WSC Prominence looks so.. blocky. And rough. And angular.

Not smooth like Volks. Ick.

My opinion is just the contrary :wink:
I like it more from the back than from the front.

This back looks a bit more "gundamish" than usual, and I don't mean this in a bad way, but it looks more "real", with more panel lines.

On the other hand there's a little something wrong with it from front view. Not enough thin, or dynamic, I don't really know :roll: .

The Volks' back is definitely better than the WSC back.

1) The Volks ver. has more "dangle" behind the neck, w/ WSC, 4 x dangles is just not enough.

2) The part just below the "dangles", Volks did a better job.

3) Panel lines at the rear of the leg: there is such a thing as overdoing, in this case, WSC. Panel lines are by definition a "background" material, it was never meant to take foreground or "centerstage" so to speak. The WSC panel lines at the rear leg part is just too much.

The WSC front is better than the Volks front.

1) The WSC internal skeleton, especially below the neck, is
more detail than Volks.

2) the WSC embossed shoulder pad is much better than the sticker style from volks.

3) WSC shield is definitely very flat compares to Volks, is it mean to be flat?

For those who own the Volks SAV version, can the exterior part be able to take apart and show just the internal skeleton, like the Mighty series? Anyone knows?


As well, is there anyone post a pic of the manga of the Prominence, I like to see the shield is flat or curved?

KOG: thanks for the scan, do you need any scan of any old kits? I might have it, as now I just bought a scanner.
If you buy a pet from pet stores , you are encouraging those breeders to breed more. This is the condition that they lives in:

Hm, I dunno, what do you have? I already own MH Saga, which has a lot in it already.

I supposed I'd be interested in any good coverage of the old Volks SSS kits, if you have that.

One of the area I like about WSC Prominence is the detailing under both left and ride side of the head. Volks has no detailing in that area.

Here's a picture of the frame for Volks Prominence. It does not have a full frame like the ones on the Mighty Series. You can still take some of the the armors off or leave them on as seen here http://sion0083.hp.infoseek.co.jp/prominece.htm .

Ditto. I said the same thing earlier today on this thread.

Looking at the manga pic., it seems the shield is flat after all.

I'll post it on a new thread w/ MH. not shown on MH Saga, which should be after Summer 93.

I don't get how you think the wsc sheild is flat. It isn't as curved as the volks, but it isn't flat. It IS much wider near the top than then volks version, but that is a different thing altogether.

on this pic., at that photo shoot view, it looks quite flat. The shield is not totally flat, but only bended at a slight angle.
