MG Gundam Physalis English Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade MG RX-78GP02A Physalis English Color Guide

Anavel Gato's MG RX-78GP02A Physalis from Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory. Well not his actually, but stolen by him... hey, Grand Theft Gundam is what it is *snicker*

In the anime, Zeon Ace Anavel Gato, personally came to the EFSF base to steal the RX-78GP02A Physalis in order to use it for Operation Stardust. The main reason for the theft of the RX-78GP02A Physalis was because it was a special mobile suit equipped with a nuclear warhead which was the main ingredient for the success of the said operation.

One other thing that's special about this Mobile Suit was that it was designed by Shoji Kawamori. Kawamori-sama was co-creator of the original Macross anime series and designed the iconic VF-1 Valkyrie's. And of course he was responsible for the other successful Macross sequel's. What can I say?, I'm a huge fan of the guy *snicker*

The MG RX-78GP02A is selling for 4000 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3200 yen at Hobby Search, $64.99 from Amazon 3rd party sellers.

Color Guide was translated to English from the Japanese color guide posted at Hobby Search. Great review of this model kit can be found at Dalong's Gunpla review site.
