    I felt the same way about 12 years ago, but that’s because I was building crappy high grade kits. That were tiny, undetailed, and not fun to build.

    yea they all use the XXG frame(think that's what it's called) cause it cost-effective for Bandai to produce a wide variety from the same frame. You can say the same about the 2.0 frames, look at all the Zaku variations out there. But the price is one of the main reasons I don't mess with P-Bandai kits no matter how bad I want a specific suit in MG form.



    I'm still waiting on your response about that Perfect Grade Gundam Mk.II :emoji_disappointed_relieved:

    Yup, same goes for the GAT-X kits. In my honest opinion the x-frame used in duel, buster, blitz, and Strike rm frames are the best most stable frames I’ve built so far, followed by the MK II 2.0 frame

    Wish I found this thread sooner. I've been collecting some stuff for my little boy for when he gets older( Lego, Star Wars, etc...)

    My most recent purchase. Finally found one that's sorta true to Gen 1.

    that Mk II 2.0 frame is so outdated in my opinion

    Comparing it to the 2.0 frame of the RX-78-2 which came out in 2008, that 3 year jump in frame engineering shows.
     
  14. that maybe true, but the 2.0 frame isnt what hinders Hazel, its his bulky design. And even then, this kit is actually like 80% new parts. out side of the arms, waist and thighs
