I dunno who wrote the blurb in the side, but this is NOT a perfect grade model kit. It's sort of a cross between an action figure and an MG model kit. It's 1/100 scale, not the 1/60 scale PGs come in.

Hi resolution are more than just partially pre assembled master grade, the details on them is better than a master grade, closer to real grade than anything.

Well, yeah, but it isn't anything close to a PG.

Yeah, I saw "Perfect Grade" and when skimming through the article, was thinking, "I didn't get any cherry blossom decals with mine. o_O" I was also wondering why review the kit now when it was released years ago.

Perfect Grade by definition is 1/60 scale, so saying that this is a Perfect Grade kit when it's 1/100 scale is incorrect.

PS I also bought the kit based solely on its design. I had never read the manga and only watched the OVA afterward. That sword tho!!! *___* This is one very sexy design. I also got it when it was first released so I got the bonus extra sword (and clear parts too, but never used those).

Here's my PG Astray Red Frame built back in 2009.

Nice review, but I feel a couple things are missing here: #1, one or more links to stores that carry this kit, and a link to the previous review mentioned as there doesn't seem to be an easy way to access previous articles written by this author:

I agree. For those who may be interested, this is what I found:
