HG GPB-X80 Beginning Gundam English Manual and Color Guide

HG GPB-X80 Beginning Gundam Construction Manual and Color Guide

GPB-X80 Beginning Gundam from Gunpla Builders anime series. If I understand the literature correctly, this is suppose to be an anime on starting building Gundam Model Kits. Great that Bandai tries to look after the next generation Gunpla builders.

The HG Beginning Gundam is selling for 1160 yen at Amiami, 1600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1280 yen at Hobby Search.
