Lots of color with the bonus of some pre-printed parts makes this a nice unbox.  Looking forward to seeing the individual robots and of course combining them.

  1. A cool looking kit and I am impressed with the color seperation in this kit, at least see very few spots you will need to touch up. D Style seems to keep on improving. It almost feels as if there is a rivalry now between Koto and Bandai with each increasing the quality in their kits, best shown in their SD lines.
