Ahhh shit

I've got the original, surely I don't need this repaint?

That depends entirely on

That depends entirely on whether you consider buying the same mold twice just because of different paintjob worth another 200~ dollars.

Of course you don’t need the repaint, but you might regret not buying it when you had the chance.

That's the hard life of a toy collector.

Bandai continues to impress with these paint jobs

Sucked me in with all the 40th repaints and the SRC Mazinger with the metal finish looks great too. Now this.

Well I saw someone remarking

Well I saw someone remarking how the posable hands on their GX-34 were broken the other day and decided to look at my own...and what do ya know, every single knuckle on the right hand is cracked to some degree. Gah!

It's just as bad as Ideon's shoulders!
