I'm fairly certain that it was the second of the two originally announced kits in the Hardgraph line. Anybody know how much they're going to sell for?

Thank God I didn't already buy an MG Strike. I LOVE the IWSP, IMO it's the best SEED backpack/accessory. My dumb little semi-painted HG IWSP (http://users.adelphia.net/~funaka/images/Strike_Front.jpg) is still one of my favorite models, now I can do it right in MG scale!!! Woohoo!

For me, the IWSP Strike is a must have (if for no other reason, than the 1/00 scale buster sword, I like my sharp sticks).  But damn, except for the possible exception of the Verde Buster, these stargazer kits have been a real let down.

So dissapointed... :cry:

Look at the booster on the front of the shoulder, Plastic or paint problem? Also it looks like it was never painted. And the cloak looks like animal dung. Very dissapointed about this.

I think they just did a half-ass job on the Cross Bone (Gundam Base that is), but I am pissed that the cloak is so lame.  The one pictured previously looked like it was made of better material, and cut to hang right, this one looks they ripped it off of a dress from Goth Barbi.   :mad:

But mainly, while I still think this suit is pretty sick, the apparent lack of the shot lancer is the biggest downer.

The shoulder armor looks like it'll be two plastic pieces, I mean that the blue piece will be seperate, I don't like how that cloak looks, but honestly who is gonna use it here? I mean there are some of us who would use it in like a hanger scene, bu then again, there are those of us who will scratchbuild a better looking cloak, I just care about the weapons which are looking pretty SEXY. Can't wait for this to come out.

To be fair, the GFF cloak looks 1000% better, but having a cloak made in injection plastic would use up probably 2 entire runners, and we know Bandai will not do that for their IP kits.

I like the look of the Crossbone over all.  Don't care much for the weapons but the basic suit I like.  The cloak is iffy with me.  Haven't seen the gff one.  I might get one of these though.

What are your thoughts on the new 1/72 Sazabi by G-Sys?
http://www.g-system-shop.com/cp-zlk/211_1_72_Sazabi/6.htm
I think this is kind of an extreme redesign in some ways but overall I like it. Well actually this is a resin kit so I don't care for it but it's pretty :P

If you are not refering to the Hyaku Shiki from Zeta Gundam in the gold/yellow (viewers left) the other kit in the picture is not from the Gundam universe but from Five Star Stories.  Looks to be a yellow painted LED Mirage B4  - going by just the partial picture.

It's been a long time since I was this impressed with something from G-system (I think it was the Xeku Ein).  This Saz is a BEAST!!!

I love it, very aggressive styling, the shoulder is the best part I think.  If only it's not $600 and say...$16?  :roll:

Very pretty--and entirely out of my price range (and skill set). It's definitely redesigned, but at the same time there's no mistaking that it's the Sazabi. I typically find myself going "wow!" over G-Sys designs, and this one is no exception. Very pretty--in a drool-worthy kind of way.

As for the Crossbone? I like it. It's different from the "regular" OYW and Zeta offerings that have been coming out (though we still need some more of those), it's not Seed, and--for me--that makes it good. I just want to know what poor Gundam or GM knee-joint was hobbled so that it could have its racheting pistol-grip.  :shock:

I found myself drooling profusely at the G-Sys Sazabi...*sigh* If only I could afford it T.T

I have to say the part that really grabs my attention is the head...im not sure what it is about it, but that is one good looking head  :lol:
