MG strike what I feel they can improve is the ball leg joint on the waist & improved the ankle guard which is very loose. Else the kit is perfectly fine which RG resolve the MG issue.

Hey now, atleast it isnt like the Strike Freedoms head(s)!

Feet are fine (imo), its pretty anime accurate, the Strike didnt really have slim feet in the show

Perhaps they'll use the "Perfect Strike" as an excuse to make another Strike MG.

Umm... maybe I'm a little slow here, but what's wrong with MG SF's head?

Me too, especially if in MG, they also include Strike 1.5 .

The ironic thing is, if Bandai indeed release the “official” Perfect Strike in MG or RG, it will significantly decrease (if not kill) the future sales for RG/MG Sword/Launcher Packs since many (if not most) people who buy them are only interested in combining them into “unofficial” Perfect Strike.

So then similarly, why can't Bandai package everything in the MG Age-1 Flat?

--> gransa armor
--> zefuld launcher
--> glastron launcher

Oh, nothing, nothing, just check the HG > 1/100 and MG's head, the constant redesign of it.

Because AGE kits doesnt sell well, and i doubt they will risk it seeing how bad everything related to AGE is selling

Various links found on forums regarding AGE, current gunpla sales, pictures of shelves full of AGE kits (no, im not talking about the famous 50 Yen gunpla shoop), articles, interviews with shop owners in japan, kids, and so on. I'm sure you've also seen them ever since AGE started.
including the Gunpla sales diagram that's been floating around for quite some time

Sorry, i can't find the updated one, you'll have to do with the old one i have saved, if you do some googling you should find it and its not hard to find articles and interviews regarding AGE bombing in terms of sales.

That bottom graph appears to be about GunPla sales, though.

Oh yeah, sorry, the top part is DVD sales, the diagram at the bottom is for gunpla sales.

That bottom graph doesn't really say what's actually selling, though.

both yes and no, there was a article with that diagram that confirmed that the majority of gunpla sales on that diagram is UC kits, and that AGE kits arent selling well at all, i wish i bookmarked it now so i could link it. but whatever, the picture should give nike a overall clear idea that AGE kits arent selling too well to warrant AGE MG's all the time

Edit: Article was interviews with 7-10ish store owners that complained about their AGE stocks not selling
