I used the grey marker I got from the store recently on my Gadessa, and it's sort of ok - though I'm not exactly an expert.

I like my Gadessa, though it's a bit unbalanced with the launcher stowed on its back, it needs the marker to bring out details more than other figures, and I agree that the stickers on the shoulder pads in particular are a nuisance.

Oh, and the launcher doesn't quite hold neatly together when closed up.


Wait, wasn't I supposed to be saying I liked it?


(Well, at least it looks cool on the Figma stand I swiped from one of my figures in that line.)


Oh, by the way - it would be cool to see a Figma of one of the CB pilots - maybe Marie in her orange flight suit?

You are listing down all my gripes with this thing. There's also the stickers at the ankles that wrinkle way too easily when you stick them on.

Gadessa needs to have a 1/100 release or bandai will never do it justice.

Lol, according to the manual, the Arios beam saber is stored in the front skirt armors. That's gotta look funky, yanking the saber from the front like that.

They did show how the beam sabers are pulled out from the armor in episode 3 - the beam saber folds out to the side, then pulled out.

Yeah, the mechanism's illustrated in the color section. The next worst thing would've been the beam saber ejecting directly from the crotch

the 1/100 Arios seems like it more difficult to make waist joint

Kinda strange for Bandai NOT to rehash the Excaliburs they already made for the MG Force Impulse, and instead had to retool the Excaliburs here to be extendable, even when on closer examination they're physically identical.

Seems Bandai is not THAT cheap. Nice. :]

Sword Impulse is a must-buy for me.

so there is a hope that bandai will also release MG blast impulse perhaps? i'm hope so because Blast impulse is never released in both HG or 1/100 line

Isn't that a hint by Bandai ?

maybe, because aside from the mission pack blast impulse is also a repaint like sword impulse

No, I mean if Bandai never bothered with the Blast Silhouette after the NG 1/144, I don't think they will, ever.

IMO, the Blast Silhouette is just plain ugly with the design of the Cannons. Maybe if they had streamlined it......

there is prolly a good chance too that Bandai will tweak and enhance the design of the blast impulse

The way i see 2nd season 1/100 00 kits are meant to be standing kit instead of posing kit....
