View Full Version : Reviews of SEED Remaster kits

Are there any reviews of SEED remaster kits floating around, especially ones that compare the Remaster version to the original?

I'd like to get a HG Duel, but I don't even know what the Remaster HG looks like compared to the original version.

Here's a look at the original HG Duel kit: http://www.gundamkitscollection.com/2012/01/hg-1144-r02-duel-gundam-assaultshroud.html

And here's one of the remastered version: http://joesgunpla.blogspot.com/2012/01/r02-remastered-1144-hg-duel-gundam.html

Though honestly, the only differences the new remasters have over the older kits are:

- Action Base connectors
- A 'HD' color scheme, usually just brighter & more contrasting color variants that are just a slightly different hue than the original
- Specialized marking stickers
- 'New' box art, that's basically the exact same mech artwork on a stylized background

...and that's pretty much it. Unless you really like the Duel, I'd say stick with what you have, but if you're just getting the HGs, then go for the remasters as you get a little more for your money.
