1/144 Dendrobium vs Neo Zeong

Post by Calubin_175 » Sat May 17, 2014 11:27 pm

I was surprised that the Dendrobium was actually a few thousand yen more expensive than the Neo Zeong. Which one doe you think is the better of the two for self presence, the ease to display, gimmicks etc.

Aesthetically, I prefer the Dendrobium, but I'm going to give ease-of-display to the Neo Zeong. Its design is far more vertical, meaning that it effectively takes up less space (and it can be displayed with or without its propellant tanks).

The Dendrobium has more hatches and removable bits, too, which may account for the price difference.

Sadly, both of them lack decals.

With colossal sized kits, none of them really had quality. I could say the 1/400 Musai was pretty good, but at the current market price, the 1/500 Yamato 2199 is more affordable.

I won't mind a small scale Rewoola with a small Neo Zeong externally attached to it.

Honestly, if Bandai don't mind making a smaller scaled Neo Zeong, I am all for it. At least then I can mix and match parts with actual MS.
