this was a really good

this was a really good review. not too much not too little just right. i dont really know anything about this mecha or anything about most of the SOC line.. i like the design but the white colour just seems a little to clean and sterile. though it does go well with the gold... meh its a robot and i'll no doubt end up with one, such is life.

Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly - the ill deeds along with the good, and let me be judged accordingly. The rest... is silence.

Too much for too little

I really don't see where the money this thing costs went in the production to warrant it. The SPEC line is supposed to be the cheaper line that focuses on the Real Robot designs. Up until this release, the average price of a SPEC was about $70, including the Layzner with an electronic base and two sets of armor.

Maybe they figured L-Gaim fans would pay it since there really isn't a comparable toy until you go back to the Hi-metal one from 25 years ago. I've always liked the L-Gaim design, but this one is going to wait for the inevitable clearance. Maybe if it had/did more I'd see the value, but after reading the review, I'm glad I went with the 1/60 Yamato VF-1S instead.

Definitely only for the L-Gaim fan that must have a "high end" toy, and it's still a better value than the Megahouse one from a few years ago.

Very interesting article indeed.

I am NOT an L-Gaim fan but I like some of the designs especially the samurai-like Black Grard (Black Guard????) resin model by Volks.

I will pass on this one as I'm waiting for the CM's Baldios normal colour to be issued soon.

I'm kind of starting to get

I'm kind of starting to get into the L-Gaim show,but if I end up deciding to buy a figure of it the MSiA is probably good enough for me. Like the above poster,I don't see where the 90 dollars is in this.

Thanks for the comments. Yeah, even though I like it, it just doesn't seem to justify the higher price unless you really like the design like I do. The Dragonar SPEC's are worth getting though.

I plan to review the OSIA L-Gaim next.
