HG Gundam Avalanche Exia (Dash) English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai 1/144 High Grade HG GN-001/hs-A010 Gundam Avalanche Exia English Construction Manual and Color Guide

Setsuna F. Seie's Gundam Exia equipped and configured as Gundam Exia Avalanche. There is an added Dash unit to this model kit that makes it unique from the typical Gundam Exia Avalanche. Although in the box of the model kit the Exia is spelled with an apostrophe at the end, wonder what's that all about?, shouldn't it be a "-" instead?

For me, the Avalanche redesign of the Exia is a welcome addition to the Gundam Exia line. Despite it not being seen in the anime but only in one of the side stories of Gundam 00. Still, I prefer the 1/100 scale over the 1/144 *snicker*

The HG GN-001/hs-A010 Gundam Avalanche Exia (Dash) is selling for 1450 yen at Amiami, 2000 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1400 yen at HWJapan.
