HG Geara Zulu English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai HGUC AMS-129 Geara Zulu English Construction Manual

AMS-129 Geara Zulu that appeared in the very first episode of the Gundam Unicorn OVA. Too bad that it got blown to bits so easily. Then again, I shouldn't be surprised, because this is the cannon fodder variant. Stick a commander antenna on this one and its guaranteed to have a longer life span, and probably a few more lines in the script *snicker*
