Addendum

Despite the name of the toy, I did not take any pictures on my desk, which is so covered in garbage that I'm not entirely sure where it is.

Scale!

Those look like so much fun! I love your outdoor battles. I love how you used perspective to make the army men hiding behind the rake... fortification... look in scale.

The idea of a Zaku-sized sandbag just boggles the mind. Putting the GMs next to proper 1/144 scale military vehicles (what series are those?) exposes the ludicrous scale of the Gundam universe... because the GMs look natural, but really, they'd have to be HG/RG to "match" those vehicles. And that would look silly. At least to my eyes.

Thanks!

This review was a lot of fun to do. I had forgotten that I still had a bunch of army men and micro machines from childhood in storage. I hope that they do more support vehicles if they continue this line, they could probably do a Magella Attack tank and get pretty close on the scale.

Well...that's tricky...

I pre-ordered these from AmiAmi when I saw them go up a few months ago. Right now they seem to be sold out all over, except for Amazon's Japanese site. It could just be a stock issue, and I'd recommend keeping an eye on this page and the other packs that are linked from it. Part of the problem seems to be that this line doesn't really have an English name, so if you can find them on English speaking retailers they're probably coming up with an in house translation. The name of the line in Japanese is "並ベストショー 機動戦士ガンダム 机の上が1年戦争になる?!", if that helps with searching. These just came out at the end of last month, and the manufacturer still has them in stock, so hopefully it's just a matter of taking time to restock at web retailers.

This strikes me as absolutely genius and makes me wonder why they didn't do this kinda thing earlier.

Not that it helps the availability overseas much...

...but if you're in Tokyo, there seems to be plenty of bags of these going round at toy shops and hobby retailers such as Kiddyland and LAOX. Thats as of a week ago.
