MG Musha Gundam Mk-2 English Manual and Color Guide

MG Musha Gundam Mk-2 Construction Manual and Color Guide

Just saw this posted at Dalong's site, first instance of a MG Musha Mk-2 wild on the web, woohoo! Made me realize that its May already because that's the time that this was scheduled to be released. After seeing the parts and manual up close I can't help but think how difficult it would be for me to subject this to a weathering procedure (Not that I have tried to weather a kit before), because this kit just screams majestic and elegant to me whenever I see it. And along with that is the thought that Katana's are cool no matter where you adorn it *snicker*

Aside from the beam rifle (shoryu maru) the beautiful MG Musha Gundam Mk-2 is armed with a naginata (senkou maru) and 2 long swords (kotetsu maru). Am no expert in kanji but the kotetsu maru literally translates to perfect tiger steel, senkou maru to perfect flash/glint, while shoryu literally means perfect ascending dragon.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like the model that Dalong got was for the Asian version released by Bandai Asia because it comes with the free "Japanese Traditional Pattern Motif Sticker". Read more about it here and here.

The MG Musha Gundam Mk-2 is available at Amiami for 4380 yen, 6000 yen at Hobby Link Japan. 4200 yen at HWJapan. 3rd party sellers at Amazon are selling it for $70.95.

But hey if you are after the free stickers I'd suggest purchasing from a store supplied by Bandai Asia (and not Bandai Japan) because according to the BAKUC facebook page this offer is unique only to kits distributed by Bandai Asia.
