MG PMX-003 The O English Manual and Color Guide

Bandai MG PMX-003 The O English Construction Manual and Color Guide

The much awaited Master Grade PMX-003 "The O" of Paptimus Scirocco from the Zeta Gundam anime series that had been announced for an August 2010 release by Bandai. What's a bad guy without a kickass bad guy mobile suit? "The O" perfectly fits the calculating profile of Paptimus Scirocco. Massive, overbearing and dominating, like the guy's personality. Shneaky to, what with the hands that come up from his crotch to surprise you during hand-to-hand combat *snicker*

Definitely a nice-to-have in my book of Model Kits I want to build and collect. But Oh My, how is this going to fit my meager cabinet?... hehehe. I wonder if there was sudden jump in the sales of the MG Zeta Gundam model kits because of the release of this bad boy?

The MG PMX-003 "The O" is not your average Master Grade kit owing to its size. It towers over most MG kits. Because of which its selling price is substantially larger than the average MG kit. The kit is selling for $$$ at Amazon
