HG Forever Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai High Grade HG GPB-X78-30 Forever Gundam English Color Guide and Manual

Boris Schauer's GPB-X78-30 Forever Gundam from the Gunpla Builders anime. Basically a souped up RX-78-2 with additional armor modifications, remotely piloted funnels and an independent shield system. That's on top of the usual arsenal that the RX-78-2 carries.

I found the Gunpla Builders Beginning Gundam anime cheesy but that's because it was really targetted at a much younger demographic most likely to get them interested in Gunpla, duh!. What I don't find cheesy though are the mobile suit designs that came out of the anime. A fine example of the awesomeness of their designs is the Zaku F2000, then of course there is the quirky but cute Beargguy

The 1/144 High Grade GPB-X78-30 Forever Gundam is selling for 1460 yen at Amiami, 1600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1600 yen at Hobby Search.
