You raise a good point. I always thought Luca's VF served as a kind of AWACS for the squad, or as an electronic warfare platform. If there's ever a side story about the SMS, we'd probably see him in a more versatile role against more conventional enemies like rogue Zentradi and pirates, jamming their communications and the like. I guess his electronic warfare equipment had limited usefulness against the Vajra.

I'm sort of wondering about the pastel minty freshness that is the paintjob on Luca's model there... Did we miss something during the show? Was space making his machine LOOK more regular green, or is there a special "after dinner, pop it in your mouth and taste the goodness" undertone that the staff wanted to communicate about their favorite shota...?

1/72 scale super pack for d VF-25!! I am soo gonna get that to upgrade my current VF-25F. Luckily it comes as a separate kit for 2100 yen. But then, knowing Bandai, they are most likely gonna release a bundled ver. with more gimmicks...hmm

I have finally acquired the long-awaited Sheryl Itasha... the Lancer itself is nothing to write home about, but if you bought this for the Lancer... ... well, then something is definitely wrong with you



Size Comparison:

As you can see, its only slightly bigger than my Glock.

Oh I do~ Too bad they are 40 bucks an earring though. 70 bucks if you wanted a pair..uggg

And a very long wait list for them too.

You said you wanted to toss it at the wall from frustration. Could you elaborate as to the problems? I've got this kit unbuilt and the Alto version about 80% done. So far the Alto version was tight and went together like a champ. Is there something inherently different about the Ozma version?

Thanks so much for sharing!

Damnit, but where is my VF-27? Are there no kits for that out yet? Gah...I know I've asked this before and I was told it wasn't released, but I'm hoping something has changed since the last time I asked....

Oh, how I'd like to be able to afford these little pretties... and I agree. There should be a Sheryl decal.

Now THAT is what I'm talking about. I wonder how that would look on a VF-27? (Yes I am obsessed with the VF-27). But it's cool enough there.
