What a joke. :roll: But not entirely surprising.

I prefer Volks more "organic" interpretations of details to WSC's "mechanical" approach.

What version of the SR3 is this? Skirt armour and positioning of the "gun" :? are completely different. Has a much more aggressive look compared to what has been released previous.

Well, that's the downside of having a poseable MM design that would otherwise just flop around and undoubtedly collapse under its own weight... :cry: Granted they probably could have done a better job of making the supports "look" a little better....

The reason I purchased the Volks version was as Coby suggested ie a more "organic" design compared to the WSC. Plus of course the poseability factor. Detail can always be added in later, as you yourself have probably just suggested. Proportion and design on the other hand are a little harder to change....

That's the comic version. This version is believed to be on WSC's upcoming release list.

If you buy a pet from pet stores , you are encouraging those breeders to breed more. This is the condition that they lives in:

This happened roughly 5 or so years ago.
Apparently there was a weight restriction of 28kgs or so (at the time) which was deemed to be the maximum the couriers were allowed to lift.... :? From what I was told, the Japanese post office was responsible for the mistake so the package was returned to them where one of the "smaller" boxes inside was removed and shipped seperately. Luckily they also wore the additional postage costs of the return voyage and flight back here. When it finally arrived, take 2, they actually neglected to charge me any sort of tax/import duty so I didn't complain.......

If I remember well from the FAC kit list, there was 2 kits (KOG & LED) described as paper craft models :wink:
Looking at the soft folding on the LED's veil, I guess this are those models.
Pretty impressive.

1) what's the MH above Ashura Temple? It's too dark, I can't quite make out.

Calvary: How comes there are 3? The very bottom pic. is clearly Silicon Tribe. But did someone else made 2 other pose? (they are above the 1/72 Silicon Tribe Hydra mirage

The photo above Ashura is just some Gastness Temples..

There aren't 3. There's one Calvary displayed with Buster, one displayed without buster (aka Luminous Mirage), and one buster displayed all by itself.

Silicon Tribe came out with their Calvary R and Luminous Mirage. The Calvary R on the bottom is the one that appeared in last year's FAC..
