I use to like em, but now they've grown off of me. The only good thing about this, is that it opens the door to a potential Robot Damashii Serpent.

That would be sweet. I've always liked the Serpent.

There is no way in hell this thing is going to be an exclusive. For two primary reasons.

1.) It's a Gundam, Gundams always sell.

2.) It's the Wing Zero Custom, a lot of people love it, it'd be a kick in the nuts to keep it from the masses. Bandai isn't that heartless, most of the time anyway.

Aren't usually the web exclusives ones that are more obscure or not main streamed? Like the Astraeas?

No it definitely does not. Though it pisses me off how the good ones become exclusives... And stuff that should be included in regular releases become exclusives too... *looks at GN Sword III*

The key word here is "usually".

There is no true way to distinguish what Robot Damashii figure will be a mass release, or which will be an exclusive.

Take the Robot Damashii Gaddess from Gundam 00. Back when it was first shown, none of us RD collectors even contemplated the idea it'd be an exclusive. It uses the same mold as the other GNZ figures, it was a great design, had some significance in the show because of its pilot, all signs pointed to a good ol regular release.

Then we were curb stomped with the exclusive notice. Being that it ONLY appeared in one episode, KIND OF made sense if that was the fact it was an exclusive, but I never saw that as an excuse.

Then came our fellow Jegan D-Type. After the success and praise of the Stark Jegan, everyone was pretty pumped for a nice regular Jegan, well...we all know what happened there. No, unlike the Gadessa, the decision to make the standard Jegan an exclusive had no grounds to it at all. It's a popular grunt mecha (seriously, who doesn't like the Jegan?). It also uses like 90% of the same sculpt as the Stark Jegan, aside from the bazooka, missile pods, and extra armor pieces, hell those pieces are ALL usable on the regular Jegan too, so there was no major extensive modifications between the two sculpts. But alas...the Jegan D-Type ended up as an exclusive anyway.

The point I'm making is, when all signs and facts point to a Robot Damashii figure being a regular release, you just might get that unpleasant surprise the next day.

Now I'm 99.98% the Wing Zero Custom will be a mass release, and all you fans will get one to enjoy. Just try not to shove the idea of it being an exclusive out of your head.

You'll rage buckets if it does end up one.

I just realised that the HG GN Sword V blade can connect to the GN Sword II handle. Too bad the blade cannot turn to Sword Mode though, since the crystal sensor is blocking it. Rifle Mode looks much better with the II handle rather than the V handle IMO.

Yeah, 'cause having to paint/detail a model kit makes it 'not proper'...

Indeed, I'd say that half the fun of the model kits is painting/detailing them yourself.

The other half, as well you all should know, is the rocking awesome robot toy you just bought.
