MG MSA-0011 S-Gundam English Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade 1/100 MG MSA-0011 S-Gundam English Color Guide

Master Grade MSA-0011 S-Gundam from Gundam Sentinel. I am truly impressed with the design of this Gundam along with the Ex-S Gundam. Not surprising given that renowned mecha designer Katoki Hajime was responsible for it.

Its definitely a unique rendition of the Gundam Mobile suit. What really hits you first is the unique shoulder design that is bulky and projects the "units" masculinity. This is definitely on my list of Gunpla's I'd like to have.

The S-Gundam has Vulcan machine guns at the head, beam cannon for its backpack, side waist beam cannons, beam saber and a smart gun as part of its offensive arsenal.

The MSA-0011 S-Gundam doesn't come cheap though, as compared by its price from the regular Master Grade model kits. The MSA-0011 S-Gundam is selling for 6000 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 4800 yen at Hobby Search, 4200 yen at HWJapan, $74.45 at Amazon 3rd party sellers.
