The Perfect Strike Gundam was introduced (or retconned) during the HD Remaster version of Gundam SEED, which also had a ‘remastered’ line of High Grade kits released at the same time. These were just the old High Grades with more vibrant colors and everything terrible about them. Imagine the disappointment we they released the HG Perfect Strike Gundam only to get the much better HGCE Aile Strike Gundam like months after. Many attempted to do a kitbash and combine the Perfect Striker with the new Strike Gundam to varying success. Good thing I didn’t since there’s now a better option in the form of the RG Perfect Strike Gundam.
This is essentially the RG Aile Strike Gundam, with a slightly retooled Aile Striker to accommodate the Launcher and Sword Striker packs included in the RG Skygrasper set. The Perfect Striker, officially known as the Multiple Assault Striker, also includes the removable battery packs which have been a signature design of the Perfect Strike Gundam. They also made improvements to the torso unit construction to accommodate for the additional weight of the Multiple Assault Striker.
