Oooo lucky...  Definitely looking forward to getting this.  Have to wait a month or two, though, so should be plenty of finished products by then hopefully  :)  Ironically, I just got my DVD special edition of Gundam 00 today.  Looking forward to reading the English manga.  Just hoping Bandai is gonna do this stuff in Blu-Ray too  :)

Well, 720p is doable with DVD, in fact, its what the specs are designed for.  However, Blu-Ray are always preferable.  Less disks, more extras; at least usually.

According to Wikipedia, the maximum allowed DVD video resolution is 720x576...  Less than half the number of pixels of 1280x720 resolution.  The media could handle 720p (though it may require reducing the number of episodes per disc, and/or use of a better video codec than MPEG-2), but the players almost certainly could not.

to be honest they are but I am having a issue with them too because the way they are held in, they dont put enough pressure down on the batteries so if you move them around enough or basically even at random, the lights will flicker or dim then un-dim. but yea the funny part about that is in the chest piece you have a choice for stickering between two seperate pieces to allow the center hole to be open and have the light shine through or use this singular sticker that covers the hole and says the "celestial being" stuff but its so thick and dark that the chest light cant really shine through which is weird.

The beam saber on MG Gyan is the exact same way.  They needed to use metal for switch, not a small piece of plastic that bends instead of flipping the switch....

Probably from the normal version of MG Exia (the normal one doesn't have the LEDs, right?)
