MG Full Armor Gundam English Manual and Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade MG FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam English Construction Manual and Color Guide

FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam from Mobile Suit Variations of the Universal Century timeline that never really made it into any Gundam Anime series but was considered part of the official Gundam mecha designs.

Quite cool looking really. What the FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam lacks in mobility it tries to make up for it in firepower. Reminds me a lot of the GBP-1S equipped VF-1's from the Macross Universe.

The MG FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam is selling for 3640 yen at Amiami, 5000 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3500 yen at HWJapan, $$$$ in Amazon 3rd party sellers.
