MG MS-09R Rick Dom English Color Guide

Master Grade MS-09R Rick Dom Color Guide

The MS-09R Rick Dom, the one I lovingly refer to as "so-close-but-so-far-away"... hehehe. What's not to love about Zeon's Rick Dom? That bulbous design and that humongous beam bazooka that Bandai is boasting to be even bigger than the Rick Dom itself has got me so enthralled with this mobile suit. The Rick Dom is descended from the MS-09 Dom with the outward difference being only slightly noticeable (backpack, feet, etc).

One thing I can say about the Rick Dom is that the design seems to transcend time for me. I mean when I look at the Zaku, it really reminds me of the era of the 70's when Mobile Suit Gundam first came out. The flared pants, elevator shoes and all. But when I look at the Rick Dom it still looks modern to me. But yeah, that's just me talking *snicker*
