It's interesting to see how two toys in the same line can vary so much in quality. Take, for example, this Gundam Rose and the Haow Gundam. The Haow is a high-quality toy. Sturdy, great action features, and solid. The Gundam Rose, on the other hand, is a piece of crap.
Why the harsh words you say? Well, first of all, the paint is terrible. Specks of paint, overspray, you name it. The plastic feels cheap and brittle, and there are sprue marks all over the toy. The toy is also top heavy, so it is such a pain to get it to stand up, never mind strike a dynamic pose. At 7.5" inches tall, it doesn't have far to fall.
Gundam Rose has a neat gimmick, where you lift his shoulder armor up in the back, and the front raises to reveal a missile launcher that houses rose shaped missiles that don't fire. you actually get quite a few rose missiles, but you can only store 2 on the figure. You also get 2 swords, and a lame lame core booster that plugs into the back. Oh, and you get an extra pointing hand, so the toy can mock you for buying it.
