"the Kotobukiya kit is a more hard edged rendition that embodies the CG models used in the Total Eclipse anime"

Do you think the kit was designed in CAD based on the 3d models from the show? Is it that close?

"Without the power of System Injection, a straight build of the Strike Eagle can look rather plane as it lacks the orange and black highlights seen on the Volks toy."

Ahh, look at the SRW kits and their complexity... Koto could've done it with all the orange parts, the kit just would've cost twice as much :3

"a soft plastic ball with a hole in it to create a very flexible ball-joint"

This is actually something Bandai's used before. It featured in the Gundam Seed no-grade 1/144 kit line and the SD Gundam Force kits, and has occasionally appeared in other kits.

"I was surprised to see just how close they are in size."

That is surprising. How do the larger Koto TSF kits compare to the A3 figures?

In general the Kobobukiya nonscale kits are about a head taller than the corresponding A3 figure.
