MG Gundam Exia Ignition Mode English Manual and Color Guide

MG GN-001 Gundam Exia Ignition Mode Construction and Color Guide Manual

Update: Here's the manual for the ordinary MG GN-001 Gundam Exia.

I just love that Bandai released a Master Grade version of the Gundam Exia repair mode via their Master Grade Gundam Exia Ignition Mode release. If I'm understanding this correctly, they're calling this ignition mode because of the LED light units included with the kit.

Gundam Exia repair mode takes its name from the fact that it needs a bunch of repairs. At the end of Gundam 00 Season 1, Setsuna F. Seie has his Exia nearly destroyed. You'd think that it was indeed destroyed but at the beginning of Gundam 00 Season 2 (which was 4 years after season 1) you'll see that it had indeed survived the carnage and Setsuna had patched it up so that it could still fight. Albeit not as dominating as it was before because aside from the damage incurred most mobile suits were at par already with the season 1 Gundams because they already possessed the fake GN drives to power their units.

The MG GN-001 Gundam Exia Ignition mode is selling for $53.38 at Amazon, 3664 yen at Amiami, 6500 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 5200 yen at Hobby Search.

Manual was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted over at Dalong. For a translation of the meaning of the symbols found in the model kit's manual, refer to this previous post.
