HG RB-79 Ball Twin Set English Manual and Color Guide

1/144 High Grade HG RB-79 Ball Twin Set English Construction Manual and Color Guide

The "cute" RB-79 Ball from Gundam Universal Century. My first impression of this was that they were rather flimsy, but when I saw them in action at Gundam MS IGLOO I was impressed. Chiefly because of the firepower they carry despite the small frame. The RB-79 Ball even merited its own Gundam Evolve anime short, must be a measure stick for its popularity with the fans.



In MS IGLOO they were displayed as working in a pack and using their numbers and speed to overwhelm an opponent. Their tactics kinda takes a page from Sun Tzu's Art of War, where if you are small you should rely on guerilla tactics in order to defeat your opponent.

This High Grade set is actually two Ball mobile suits for the price of one. The High Grade RB-79 Ball Twin Set is selling for 950 yen at Amiami, 1300 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1040 yen at Hobby Search.
