^ Wassup>? ;D Your going to buy this after careful consideration aren't you quin?
Argh. Probably >.<
This one isn't being done by Chemical Attack and I don't really know the design so it's a bit of an unknown. It DOES look pretty neat, kind of a mix of some L-gaim and some Gundam. I don't know that it'll have the same level of engineering and detail in the mechanics that the Chemical Attack figures do.
I'll have to see. I may PO it from a place that offers easier cancellations than Amiami.
I started reading a little bit of the Knights of Sodonia manga and I think the best word for it is rough. I think I'll skip this riobot release.
For what it's worth, it does seem to get better as it goes along. The first two volumes I went through just seemed like a jumbled mess of garbage. As it progresses it gets a great deal more interesting.
Hah! An interesting insight for why this mech looks like it's been made from a mishmash of other designs - the artist put in a little "behind the scenes" mini comic in one of the later issues of the series which outlined his design process, which was essentially buying a ton of model kits and chopping them up and gluing them back together again to make his design.
I know one of the first things that went through my mind when I saw this was "Gaplant" and I'd bet that more than a few parts for the Tsugimori came from a gaplant or two, hah.
Cyberbots! No way! That is awesome. Probably won't see a release for this till next year...late, but still exciting enough to hold my attention.
Yeah, quinjester that's pretty interesting to see how that design was approached. Makes a lot more sense from that perspective. I also didn't know this manga was done by Tsumotu Nihei (Blame, Snikt). I will have to check this out!

I just saw this on the cybergundam blog:
I can't see Sentinel's name anywhere on it, but considering that they did the capcom exclusive figure release for Monster Hunter 3G it would stand to reason that they're doing the one for Monster Hunter 4, as well (and it does look similar in design and physique to their Lagiacrus armor). Hopefully that is the case, because a Rathalos armor figure (that ISN'T a revoltech) is right up my alley

blitzkriegomega: Okay. Super Robot Wars Alpha? you know...when my hit% is 9% or less, I'm supposed to DODGE, right? then why does every attack hit without fail and game-over me for the 40th freaking time?
