HG Brave Standard Test Type English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai High Grade HG GNX-Y903VS Brave Standard Test Type English Color Guide

GNX-Y903VS Brave Standard Test Type from the Gundam 00 Movie: Awakening of the TrailBlazer made into a 1/144 High Grade kit by Bandai. Haven't watched the movie yet (obviously) but am looking forward to the DVD release this December as announced on the official site.

As much as I don't want to pass judgement on the mecha in an anime till I see the movie, I can't help but say that there seems to be a degradation of the design of the mecha's in the Gundam 00 series as it progressed. From well built, detailed to crudely designed and sloppily put together. But then again, that's just my personal opinion.

The HG GNX-Y903VS Brave Standard Test Type is selling for 1160 yen at Amiami, 1600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1280 yen at Hobby Search
