What't really got me going is the $85 dollar price tag on the super suit. Yeah it looks cool, but if I have to pay Master Grade Gundam model prices, I'll just buy a freaking Master Grade Gundam Model.
That's multi-color injection molded, posable, internal detail. Oh, and only $58.67 retail(minus cost of shipping from Japan). That's if I treated myself to one of the nicer kits. I could buy just a measly High Grade kit for $30-40, and it would easily match whatever GW puts out in terms of quality.
Given that I have about a dozen kits in my closet, you can guess how I'll be fielding my Riptide suits when the new codex comes out. I'll have to figure something out about that flyer as well, defiantly not paying real money for that fugly thing.
Can we get the big GT TOs(Nova, Adepticon, ext) to just go ahead and say that non-GW models are OK for their tournaments. We need GW to feel the pain for releasing crap that we have to buy so that we can still keep playing with the $800 of crap we already have.
Man...now I really want to buy that Gundam kit I linked to,
