GN Arms & Jumbo Grade Zeta Gundam

After the emergence of Dendrobium in UC0083: Stardust Memory, and then METEOR in SEED and SEED Destiny, the idea of weapon platforms for Gundam seems to be a must for all Gundam series now.

So for Gundam Double O, we have GN Arms:

The size of the weapon platform shrieked from one series to the next! XD

After the announcement of this mecha the other day, here are some prototype photos of 1/144 GN Arms to tempt your wallet ^^;

While you might compared GN Arms to METEOR, those little claws on its supporting 'feet' (?) really reminds me of some of weird mecha appeared in Advance of Zeta.

Also, a bit of updates on Jumbo Grade Zeta Gundam:

The size is amazing, but the transformation is done via part-swapping!!
I'm can see many disappointed faces after this news ^^;
