AT field indeed. If I remember correctly, not a single Knightmare got through it's shield once. Overall a good review, I have to say I'm not particularly bothered by this thing not being able spread it's legs, since it was pretty much never shown on the ground activated. Despite that, I still feel this guy is about $10-$20 more expensive then it should be. Might buy it on sale.

That Lelouch standing figure

That Lelouch standing figure is meant to replicate a scene where Lelouch gave speech to his troop before final battle. You forgot to mention that Lelouch figure has a fabulous pink sword lol.

Ver. Ka is basically Katoki's

Ver. Ka is basically Katoki's markings on an existing character. I think that's the only thing distinguishing this from an average Robot Spirits release. You see the same thing on FIX, Metal Composite, etc...

The difference is.........

You are right in stating that it has katokis markings but its not cousin to RD....... Composite is a spin off from the GFF lines done by katoki's which were were pretty much glorified statues ( they had articulation but werent meant for doing any real posing just to stand straight and look pretty) and deals with mecha that arent gundam lol. Katoki took the composite a bit further going beyond just decals and making them a bit more flamboyant (look at the Gurren lagan and Lancelot composites).

A bit of history on GFF, They were pretty fragile though and many parts fell off easily. Years later they revamped the line into GFFN where they did away with the pvc and almost used entirely ABS for the figures (which confused me when you said this figure is almost entirely of PVC when it is in fact primarily ABS). Furthermore The GFF line is more true to 1/144 scale so they are bigger than RDs........ The last few releases, however, the figures are gaining more articulation akin to the RD line. I assume because people want more than just pretty statues.

A lot of people are upset with this line because they cost twice as much as RD but loose the playability and durability factor found in that line....... but people need to know they are two seperate lines for two different type of collectors.

Thanks for the background.

Thanks for the background. Given that the composites are an evolution of GFF, I can understand the limited playability of the figure. It certainly is a handsome statue that can technically move. The RD toys I have are definitely more posing-oriented and fun.

I forgot to mention that the GFFN line incorporated some diecast into the internals....... Though their last creation ( FA Unicorn ) I dont think had any as with the composites. Next in line is Cybaster from SRW...... and it wont even have any of the funky decals or markings as previous entries, which many fans are happy about.
