1/100 GNY-001F Gundam Astraea Type F English Manual & Color Guide

1/100 GNY-001F Gundam Astraea Type F Construction Manual

The 1/100 non grade Gundam Astraea Type F of Fon Spaak from the Gundam 00 side stories. Like the Gundam Astraea of Ruido Resonance, The Type F also serves as a test bed for Celestial Being to try out new technologies that they are developing for their frontline Gundams.

The side stories are a series of comics that further expand the Anno Domini Universe timeline that Gundam 00 resides in. Personally I prefer the Gundam 00 series over the others when it comes to the storyline, I think that it tackles more mature themes which shows that the Gundam franchise is growing up along with its original fanbase who are probably within the 30~50 age bracket... but yeah that's just me thinking again... hehehe

The 1/100 non-grade Astraea F Type is selling for 2054 yen at Amiami, 2800 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 2240 yen at Hobby Search and 1959 yen at HWJapan. 3rd party sellers over at Amazon are usually selling it for $$$$.
