Man I need to rob a bank!!! Hobby fan is offering a discount on pre orders for a G-system WSC recast. It will be available in october for purchase and only producing 20 units. I'm going to figure something out. I need this kit.

They don't produce them. They import and distribute them.

The Jagd Mirage they stock is recast by G System. A company based in HK.

Does anyone have any experience with this G-system recast? is it worth it? I like to buy originals, but this is a super exspensive kit. Under $800 for the Twin Tower version. Could be my only chance if I can talk my girlfriend into early Christmas money. Would I be better off saving for a real WSC version?

I had this exact kit from WSC when they produced it for the very first time a long time ago.

The casting is very nice and clean. You also get photo etched, metal heels, springs and plastic scratchbuild parts for detailing.

Go to FSS Trade section of the forum, there is a korean guy selling it for $500 or best offer. He advertise all the time.
If you buy a pet from pet stores , you are encouraging those breeders to breed more. This is the condition that they lives in:

Well I've been gone a while it seems. Nice to see people still active here.

Anyway, I don't have this G-System kit, but I do have a couple other kits they did. I've had no complaints what-so-ever about the quality. Real version might be better... it's the saving up part that is tough. Plus finding them when you have the money. I always seem to have the money when no one has the kit I'm looking for and be broke when the kit is available. LOL!

Hey Happy, I think the kit you are refering to is one listed on Ebay? If so, this one is rescue version. I would like to have the Twin Tower version. Good looking out though. I really like the picture on the Demon Towers web page. The one were the Buster's face forward and it looks like it is charging something. Man, what a powerful looking pose. I would love to have one. I can't believe all this MH kit action lately. Got to get my hustle on because of all this great news.

That's the Volks MM Twin Tower. ^_^

I'd love to have that kit for posing the busters also.. the WSC TT needs a bucket load of modifying to achive that pose successfully.

I think eventually if I get lucky, I'll stick to the WSC Twin Tower.. but try to get my hands on a Volks MM Jagd Both version.
