MG Wing Gundam English Manual and Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade MG XXXG-01W Wing Gundam English Construction Manual and Color Guide
Hero Yui's XXXG-01W Wing Gundam from the Gundam Wing anime series. Recently released this year as a Master Grade kit by Bandai. This seems to be quite a popular kit as I've seen it back ordered already at some online shops. The Wing Gundam is one of the 4 Gundams sent to earth by the space colonies. It is unique with its ability to transform to "Bird" mode enabling it enhanced flight capabilities.

Haven't gotten around to finish watching the Gundam Wing series that I recently had in my possession. I watched the first few episodes and my initial judgement of Hero Yui is that he has an enormous chip off his shoulder. But I really shouldn't be passing judgement right now on the series because of the depth of my exposure to it, which is quite shallow right now.

The Master Grade XXXG-01W Wing Gundam is selling for 2930 yen at Amiami, 4000 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 2800 yen at HWJapan.
