Wow.

I know I'm usually the first one to say I respect the history of something I show an interest/specialty in but.. Wow...

This thing's absolutely

This thing's absolutely amazing. Thanks for sharing, Leo! Apparently, this is version 2 of the Clover ST. Check out TBDX's coverage of Clover for all of their Gundam (and other) offerings.

One day, I'd like to pick up the Combination Junior...or, hopefully, the Gattai set.

These toys totally harken back to the old days of super robot toy designs (namely, the 70's!). They have a charm all their own.

Later toys and models obviously appeal to those interested in the "ultra-realistic" look. And that's fine. But I'm not really feeling the whole "Katoki-ization" of Gundam designs in the early Master Grade kits (and obviously with the FIX line). All I know is that the latest ("2.0") kits that actually look like the mecha in the cartoons seem a lot cooler to me.

Gattai Set

Much agreed! I would love to have that Gattai set, it would go great next my Godaikin series, looks like the perfect size as well. I wonder how much they sell for these days! I will upload the box scans shortly as I wrote this review where I didn't have access to a scanner.

I do love the charm of these older designs, and the closer they look to the anime the better. Every artists is going to have their take on the theme ( take Batman for example) but the original RX-78 will always be my favorite.

Happy Holidays my friend!

GA-100

Sanjeev is right, the GA-100 is a beautiful toy. I have one and it is one of my favorite toys in my collection. It fits right in with all my other vintage toys and I even like it more than the RX-78 and GM from the GD Chogokin series.
