I think the only thing I'd want to change about this design is the yellow stripes on the head fins, but that's easy enough when painting this up. Looks like a great kit
This looks great, and I'm glad I pre-ordered it.I think I paid around US$70 shipped from PlayAsia, which is the cost of a single Kotobukiya kit before shipping, and this kit even has multiple light-up features included. Kotobukiya needs to step-up their game.
I'm liking the different hair variants and the detail is pretty impressive, that said I can't help but feel that they kinda over-designed him for no real reason.For me, one of the appeals of the Toru Nakayama Zero design was the simplicity.
I'm with you on the simplicity factor, and have felt for a while that Nakayama's art is my favorite in the Mega Man universe. I do like this design though, but it's probably because it evokes some of the "detail up" modeling trends happening with Gundams right now.
