Char Haro (Charo?) is red, but where's the horn? And can it flutter and spout cute and random phrases at three times the speed of normal Haros?

It's great to finally see some Gundam in Astro Toy. I've seen other figures in this line and was wondering if I should get them--this review really helped me decide. I was suprised to see the stand was included.

That is one cute little Gundam, especially in the third to last picture. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for this one. Maybe I'll get lucky with a sale price.

actually, a "Nendoroids-- now with posing!" line is starting to come out

It was just a matter of time. With the Revoltech and figma lines, and the success of Nendoroid, inevitable this combination was.

Once they do come out, it's time to get those too. I've always liked this line, but not enough to invest in it due to cost. If the mobility feature doesn't increase the price, a new fan is born.

This figure is undeniably cute. I'm sorely tempted to get even though I haven't seen any Gundam beyond parts of Wing and G. The price holds me back.

AmiAmi seem to have it for quite a lot less, and they offer SAL shipping now so it should work out cheaper than HLJ.

Whoa, this is now The Deal. Gonna start taking Amiami and HWJapan into consideration for future stuff.

Gundams shouldn't be cute.

Hence why SD Gundam was so unpopular when it managed to get on TV here. I don't really mind it myself, I see these things for what they are: an excuse to get money from people that like Gundam. It's not like it takes away from any of the shows.
