1/100 GN-001 Gundam Exia English Manual and Color Guide

1/100 GN-001 Gundam Exia Construction Manual and Color Guide

Was looking for the translated manual of the non-grade 1/100 GN-001 Gundam Exia and couldn't find it. I don't remember translating the manual either so it was most likely not translated. I suddenly was interested in the non-grade 1/100 Gundam Exia after building the 1/60 GN-001 Gundam Exia last week. Was never really into close-combat type Gundams but after seeing how the producers of the show designed Gundam Exia to fight I was finally impressed by the premise of a melee type mobile suit.

After the 1/100 GN-001 Gundam Exia, there was a lot more Gundam Exia model kit versions made by Bandai. A sample of which are the MG GN-001 Gundam Exia Ignition mode, MG GN-001 Gundam Exia, 1/60 GN-001 Gundam Exia, 1/100 Gundam Avalance Exia.


The Non-grade 1/100 GN-001 Gundam Exia is selling for 1687 yen at Amiami, 2300 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1840 yen at Hobby Search
