1/100 Gundam Astray Mirage Frame 2nd Issue English Manual & Color Guide

1/100 MBF-POSLM2 Gundam Astray Mirage Frame 2nd Issue Construction Manual
Rondo Gina Sahaku's Gundam Astray Mirage Frame 2nd Issue from the Gundam Seed vs Astray manga series. Compared to most Gundam Astray designs, this version towers over the rest by having longer legs and a wider shoulders. The "human" mode of this suit is called "Tyrant Mode", when it transforms into a quadruped it is dubbed "beast mode."

Compared to its previous form (version 1), this mobile suit has been transformed to a more melee specialist with the predominantly edged weapons in its arsenal. Unique to this unit is the Mirage Colloid system that renders the mobile suit invisible to sensors and the human eye for a limited amount of time.

I don't know about you, but to me, this mobile suit is butt ugly *snicker* Its not just the design, but the color scheme in general. Looks like something that is more apt to be part of the Transformers Beast Wars Series, but yeah, that's just my personal opinion.

The 1/100 MBF-POSLM2 Gundam Astray Mirage Frame 2nd Issue is selling for 1832 yen at Amiami, 2500 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1750 yen at HWJapan.
