What’s Grey and Red and Tall All Over?

A lot of people were waiting a long time for the Master Grade Jegan to show up, and when it did, a lot of people jumped on it. I took a more conservative approach. I like the Jegan, but I already had a couple HGUC flavours, and I wasn’t really feeling the hype. The great […]

Small Arms, Big Stick

Sometimes, all a design needs is a bit of freshening up to make it look brand new. A perfect example of this are the retconned Gundam Wing redesigns done by Hajime Katoki. Taking the Endless Waltz Gundams and backdating them to “original” versions has yeilded, almost without exception, designs that are cleaner and meaner-looking than […]

Check out the Out of Box (OOB) review of this Master Grade ¬†incarnation of the most spastic-looking MS of all! I think this is an old idea that […]
