Gundam SEED Vs. Astray reminds me a lot of my high school days. I remember distinctively this really ugly group of people. They would all hang together and were friends with possibly the ugliest girl in school. When they all gathered together, they all seemed to look better in comparison due to the visual existence of this one, really ugly girl. Gundam SEED Vs. Astray has found its ugly girl.
Coming in at the end of the month is the 1/100 Astray Mirage Frame Second Revise. It is easily the ugliest Gundam model of all-time. Yes, this even beats out the previous ugliest Gundam ever, the Nix Providence. Its color combination isn't the only thing at fault here. Purple and pink can look glorious, just look at Puru's Qubeley for example. But a horn antenna combined with the fact that this thing transform to into an even more inconceivable mode just makes this thing hideous. It transforms into an odd dog/dragon/wtf 4-legged creature and I have no idea how it even works as arms and legs shouldn't bend that way. Oh and out of its mouth come two beam sabers. This is the ugliest piece of crap I've ever seen.
You can look forward to seeing this on shelves on the 29th of January, going for the price of 2625 yen. I've started to see more of the Vs. Astray series kits coming into the US in hobby shops, so don't be surprised if you see this monstrosity for yourself soon.
