HG GX-9900 Gundam X English Manual and Color Guide

HG GX-9900 Gundam X Construction Manual and Color Guide

Haven't watched After War Gundam yet so when I saw this High Grade kit of the GX-9900 Gundam X that was released this year I just shrugged my shoulders. Same reaction I got when I was reviewing the bootleg Gundam Dynames... meh. Of course after watching Gundam 00 Season 1 I was pretty much floored by Gundam Dynames because of my admiration for Lockon Stratos.

According to the literature found in the manual, the Gundam X stands 17.1 m tall and weighs 7.5 tons (kinda short and light?). The Gundam X is armed with a Satellite Cannon, Shield Buster Rifle, Large Beam Sword, Breast Vulcan and a Shoulder Vulcan. Seems to pack quite a punch though despite its physical stature.

The HG GX-9900 Gundam X is selling for 1320 yen at Amiami, 1800 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 1260 yen at HWJapan.
