HG ZZ Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai 1/144 HGUC MSZ-010 ZZ Gundam English Construction Manual and Color Guide

The titular mobile suit in the ZZ Gundam anime series gets released as a 1/144 scale High Grade Universal Century model kit by Bandai July this year. The MSZ-010 ΖΖ Gundam (Double Z Gundam) was flown by Judau Ashta for AEUG in the anime series.

This model kit can be broken down into its main parts: Core Top, Core Base and Core Fighter mode to allow it to be assembled as the G Fortress. According to the fictional site specs listed in the manual, the ZZ Gundam stands 19.86m tall, weighs 32.7 tons bare and 68.4 tons fully loaded. Its a powerful beast of a mobile suit, generating about 7340kw of power. It comes armes with a Hi-Mega Cannon, Double Vulcans, Beam Cannon/Hyper Beam Saber, Double Beam Rifle and Missile Launchers.

I haven't watched this ZZ Gundam yet, but based from reviews I've been reading from the web they say that the first few parts weren't that good. I guess I'll have to see that for myself whenever I get the chance to watch it. As for me, this is one of the coolest looking mobile suits. Especially its variants, like the FAZZ and the Full Armor Double Zeta.

The HGUC ZZ Gundam model kit is selling for 1680 yen at Amiami, 2300 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1610 yen at HWJapan.
