Big-lots was my friend

I remember picking this up (and Char's Gelgoog) at Big-lots for $9.99. They made for some great hand-candy! I was not a fan of how 'soft' they felt compared to the 1/100 G Gundam toys. I really dislike G Gundam but bought the toys anyway because they had a great feel (and chrome!).

I really wish Bandai would redo and restart this line. I love UC Gunpla, but sometimes I just want something to goof around with and not worry about breaking or trying to pose for an hour.

Oh yeah, certainly one of my TOP favorite RX-78s! I will recommend this to anyone that will listen. You made that point perfectly, here! Just a fantastic figure all around.

I LOVE this figure. It's

I LOVE this figure. It's amazing that it was just $20 at the time. Like you, I wish they did more for the Arch Enemy line. Imagine an Alex NT-1 and Kampfer (I know it was really the Alex and the Zaku 2 Kai that fought but the Kampfer is a bit more iconic).

Char's Gelgoog

I have the "arch enemy" figure for this one, Char's Gelgoog. I was considering ebaying it since I have the HGUC version, making the Arch Enemy version both redundant and out of scale with the rest of my Gundam stuff. If you're interested, I'll give you a good deal.

In A Perfect World...

Based on what series were already out there at the time, the perfect version of this line for me would have been...

MSG: MS-06S Char. Yes, the Gelgoog is cooler, but if we're honest, Char's Zaku II is what made him famous.
8th MS: RX-79[G]Ez-8 & MS-07B-3. Epic battle.
0080: RX-78NT-1 & MS-18E. Like you said, iconic.
0083: RX-78GP01-Fb & RX78GP02A
Zeta: MSZ-006 & RMS-106/PMX-003
ZZ: MSZ-010 & AMX-004
Char's Counterattack: RX-93 & MSN-04
F91: F91 & XM-01
Victory: V1/V2 & ZMT-S12G/?
Wing: Wing/Wing Zero & Tallgeese I/Epyon

I can't speak to X, Turn-A, or Seed, since I haven't watched them in their entirety yet.

well even though it was in the DX line, they did do a RX-78GP01-Fb & RX78GP02A and RX-93 & MSN-04.

12-inch

Yeah, I remember those. Had the Fb, but there was something defective with it, and I don't remember what. Sold it as part of a junk lot. Either way, it would have been great to get more figures from one or both of those lines.

Hehe, mine is kinda defective too. The one big booster comes off too easily. It displays fine though.
