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.

Looking at owner pictures of Laura I'm glad I skipped her. I mean, I love Laura but her finish is so.. rough. The paint is barely any better than the prototype and it seems her armor still has that flimsy feeling the MS girl had.

Man, I really wanted AGP line to be good too, but I'm starting to have my doubts now that we're a few figures in and I'm still not overly impressed. If they were cheaper I'd be all over them.

Still planning on getting the next MS girl if she drops in price after release.

Canceled Laura, and given the review on her, glad to have done so. Seriously, when you look at the paint on her..... Derp.

Huh, I'm surprised that everyone's so negative about Laura. I received mine recently and really love her. Mine seems much more stable and less clunky than the earlier Cecilia release. I also encountered nothing in the way of QC issues, although it's certainly true that the faces are not quite as high-quality as recent shinki faces. At least on my copy they are still recognizable and not silly-looking, so that's enough for me.

Then again, I'm biased: Laura's my favourite.

I got my Laura last week. I think Bandai had a little development from Cecilia.
Image
- Her face can change easier than Cecilia because they change face from all head to figma like.
Image
- Her hand smaller than Cecilia (except normal hand that use the same as Cecilia)
Image
- Her shoulder armor is stable and easy to pose action if you don't attach railgun

but she also have problem such as
Image
- her height is same as Cecilia, but use body shape to delusive that she is smaller than Cecilia

The worst thing is Bandai QC. You can see that my Laura doesn't have 2 small gold pieces (wire blade) at my right shoulder armor. Bandai don't put it in my box. I will use resin copy to solve this problem
Image

I heard that someone don't have clear part that connect body with backpack unit in his box.

I use 1/100 HG V2 Gundam beam shield for AIC field effect

*sighs at quality control issues*
I had such high hopes for this line, too.

PS: They're the same size? REALLY?

Yes Cecilia and Laura has same height, as I tell my friend AGP IS without armor is nothing, but with armor they will worth their price.

And now my turn!
Image

Howling seems not impressed by the new comer.
Image

And Yukina knows it.
Image

Howling sure loves big guns.
Image

Time to get into her armor.
Image

Of course, this is a two person operation.
Image

The downside of being well endowed.
Image

"Not yet Mikuru. That be last to go on."
Image

Still helping Yukina with her armor.
Image

"Not yet. I need my other leg armor on."
Image

"Okay. I can hold my rifle and shield. Can you get my wings?"
Image

"Thanks for the help Mikuru!"
Image

I found that slipping into her gun hand the buster rifle and having it clip to the arming point the most difficult part of the whole build. The lower leg pieces that attach to the calves were not marked right from left so I had one on the wrong leg. The most trouble I can foresee are the wrists. They are relatively weak when compared to other figures but overall, I am satisfied with what I got. I am unaware of any other versions of this one but I do plan on getting the GP-03 Stamen girl.
Gentlemen do prefer blonde's.

wow, she's pretty but the armor was not mark left from right at all? is it a little different or something? I had a similar issue with a revoltech, I took the legs off to change parts and I put the wrong legs on the wrong sides because the thigh swivils got turned the wrong way, I quickly noticed that the orange straps on one of her legs belonged on the other side and switched it back, also Altlene has similar boot issues doesn't she? if you don't take apart the boots or place them ways you'll remeber it can become fitting by trial and error LOL
