I've just got the origin version and it appears to be just as posable as the ver 3 but it does it in a different way. The engineering is different but the results seem to be the same. As far as detail is concerned they both come only with stickers (BOO HISS Bandai!) with the Ver 3 just ahead in those stakes plus you can get a full set of proper decals for Ver 3 as none have been forthcoming for the origin, yet. It doesn't have the multi coloured panels the ver 3 does so panel detail wise you could say it's behind but I reckon that would make it easier to assemble and you can always paint the different coloured panels.

The origin comes with a lot more weapons. It has two beam rifles, the bazooka, the shoulder cannon, the small gatling in the right shoulder and some more guns in the arms.

The. 3.0 has some issues with the shoulder armour being loose and the back pack armour falls off a lot and sometimes the torso comes off,but that could just be mine.personally I wouldn't buy it again given the choice.
