First of all, printing 3D stuff is expensive. I am not even talking about the printer itself, I am talking about...

I just realized that I never really told you guys what I think about the PG Strike Freedom!^^
And while I did buy a knock-off I don't really think that has an impact on what I think about the kit.

The PG Strike Freedom is from Daban. And so far I do think it's worth it, got the kit for about half the price of the original.

That's 222.68€ without shipping though. And there is no way that they are gonna give me free shipping from the US to Germany :P So we would get a lot closer to 320€ again.

Kind of. They could use Exia's frame (or at least most of it) but the rest would be new.
