Armor Girls Project: Infinite Stratos (& Mobile Suit Girls)

For discussion of all the other girl+mecha lines that have cropped up since Shinki began: Frame Arms: Girls, Megami Device, Armor Girls Project, Desktop Army, etc. This includes kinda-sortas like Daibadi's Polynian and things like Strike Witches and Fumikane's original Mecha Musume.

A new arrival...

I am liking her a lot more than AGP Laura Bodewig. Her armor is nicely sculpted and painted. It's like Bandai employed their better gunpla modelers for this.
...yes her Mega Beam Cannon is as big as it appears...
just me stealing your shadow...
and whatever else a camera can take.

I just hope the parts interlock better than the AGP Wing Gundam.

Thinking of getting one but I'm currently on the fence due to prior experience.

I'm waiting for her to show up in Previews.
Her face looks a bit derpy, but if the price is right...
And I echo the question: Does her armor stay on better then the Wing girl?

She's fiddly as hell to set up, but once you've got everything in place it mostly stays there. The only exception is the side/front skirt pieces, which connect via a balljoint into sockets in her soft plastic crotch piece, and which at least on one side of mine, don't stay in very securely (they're fine if you don't touch them, but nudge it in the wrong way and it'll fall out instantly). Other than that, everything is rock-solid though.

Interesting... Though I'm still a bit worried about QC, considering what happened to Gundam Wing Girl which came out before her. Were there any blemishes or QC problems with her parts that you could find? Otherwise, I'll be cradling my soon-to-be-nuked wallet...

Got mine too, no pics yet because I'm inking the odds and ends with Gundam Marker.

The hands no longer suck and there's no sticky feeling in certain parts like with the Wing girl, but the skirt armor is annoying. If you're gonna do an action pose with the legs in certain angle, you have to set it beforehand, then place the armor afterward.

Judging from the kind of MS they used for the first two MSGs, Bandai seems to be concentrating on OAV Main Character MS first.

~Wing Gundam (Endless Waltz)
~GP03S Stamen (Stardust Memory)

With that in mind, they'll probably do either of these two next:

~NT-1 Alex (War In The Pocket)
~Ez-8 (08th MS Team)

The Gundam Alex girl MUST be a red head or a strawberry blonde.
