Okay, for a monster machine like this, with parts sticking out all over, and which is so top heavy it cannot stand on its own, the naming of "Ex-S" seems appropriate, considering the homonym "excess."
But gosh, it's sooo sharp looking... Let me come back to that point about standing up by itself: It can't. At first, when I saw that this kit came with a display stand to hold it up, I was greatly dissapointed, as I really was looking forward to building it. But then I started thinking about all the other Gundam kits of mine that have fallen over and broken or lost parts when I had them posed someplace, and I began to think that maybe a display stand isn't such a bad idea after all...
Of course the kit can transform into the long-range "G-Cruiser" mode, similar to the Zeta Gundam, and the display stand itself also converts into a mode specifically designed for displaying the kit when it's in ship mode. A whopping 31 runners of parts in all! Get ready for hours of cuttin' 'n' snappin' with this baby!

Lurch26 January at 11:30 @DP - It completely changes the atmosphere of the game to something much more sinister and oppressive. I loaded up the PS1 classic for comparison and the 2002 GC version had an incredible amount of effort put in. Your pic also shows how grainy some of the backgrounds now look, but overall a very good port.
