Im a huge fan of the Gundam Franchise and i collect the Gundam Action Figure Model kits. I just recently found a new place to buy them besides online and i was really excited.

When i was building my newest Model (the Astray Red Fram btw), i realized that with how much detail it contains for only being a 1/144 scale model of a gundam i was cursious as to what they choose to put into the PG models, which are 1/60 scale. How realistic are they? if anyone knows and can tell me if they are worth the time and money, please let me know.

After seeing the GK version, I no longer want to collect any Haruhi figurine in PVC.


Color me normal, but I prefer Haruhi in her normal clothes. Quality aside, I'm not interested in any of the "bunny suit" versions.

Now if someone made a GK of regular Haruhi, in her signature pose, and sold it, pre-assembled and pre-painted, for something I was willing to pay... that'd be cool.

PS: I almost bought more Haruhi merch today, but I decided to buy something a little more.... brutal.

Shocked Wow, just wow. Those figures are awesome. Simply marvelous pieces of work, if you ask me.

Never thought I'd see Cobra Commander and Haruhi together, in any form. xD

As someone who doesn't usually buy anime figures/statues, and whose entire figure collection consists of one Cardcaptor Sakura figure bought seven years ago, an Utena doll, and a few oversized, 15" Sailor Scouts, I have to say, I'd buy this. I'm not in a hurry to preorder, but I'm definitely going to consider buying this in the future. The only complaint I have is the mouth, which looks...I dunno....It's not so much the shape of the mouth, which I like, but the fact that it isn't really concave - her "tongue" looks big. But that's just me being picky, as it seems most anime statues are like that.

Still, I have to admit, that it doesn't measure up to the handmade garage kit of the Bunny Haruhi. Love the guitar! It's almost too detailed...If I could buy one, I'd be afraid of my little bro stealing it, y'know...

The Haruhi statue... I thought it'd be good, but the close-ups exceeded my expectations. Not bad at all for a PVC model.

I've already pre-ordered that Revoltech Saber from Fate/Stay Night. She'll have the same articulation as the Revy from Black Lagoon in the Revoltech line, but won't look so weird because Saber doesn't show as much flesh. Anime catgrin + sweatdrop

I have about half dozen Perfect Grade Gundams, and at 1/60 scale, they have a tonne of detail & articulation that can not be done to a 1/144 scale kit. The last one I built was the PG Wing Zero Custom; it has nearly 700 pieces, including metal ball & socket joints for the pelvis, screws, bolts & LED's for the eyes & chest area, & it took me nearly a week to build. Here's a pic of the various scales;

The PG kit has articulated fingers, & it's big enough to hold a SD Gundam in one hand. Anime catgrin + sweatdrop
