This episode should also be called "Rocky - Gunpla Girls Ver." Just imagine Eye of the Tiger playing during the montage sequence. :D
I really have to wonder if Caro-chan and China piloting are going to ever be featured again, since it was pretty clear this was a filler episode before the World Tournament. Also, it gets major bonus points for including Allenby look-alike Alice Imai (a subtle model kit reference I believe) and her custom Nobel Gundam. All-in-all I rate this episode a solid 5 one-sided rivalries out 5. MOEGARE, GUNPLA!!!
