Pre-ordered both, 'cuz I'm a sucker for Strarf and Arnval, and for these molds in particular. Though... I don't find these recolors as compelling as the original Angel Strarf and Devil Arnval decos. These are more like unique characters than inverted versions of Strarf and Arnval... heck, Ravina looks an awful lot more like... well, Asuka than Strarf. That's not a bad thing, it's just not Strarf. I love the gun though.

I'll have to figure out how to use them in the comic someday. They'd have to be new chars though... just not feeling 'Strarf' or 'Arnval' in them.

...Asuka? MMS Type Fighter Plane? Recently repainted in black as a Night Fighter variant?

Come on, Konami. Couldn't you have spaced out these releases a bit more to allow our wallets recovery time? LOL

Ah well. Preordered these two against my better judgment. :)

Ah, right! Don't know why that slipped my mind...

Although Ravina doesn't look like Asuka to me at all. Ravina's skin tone seems darker, her hair isn't nearly cut as straight, and she's got the twintails in regular mode. I do have to agree Ravina really does look like her own person than a Strarf.

I very agree on that. Having like 4 releases in consecutive months is boneheaded on Konami's part and there's only a one month gap between this month's Gabrine and Renge and the coming 4 waves. On top of that, there's the Ach and Yda re-release. Konami's really shooting themselves in the foot.
