HG Acguy English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai 1/144 High GRade HGUC MSM-04 Acguy English Color Guide and Manual

MSM-04 Acguy from Mobile Suit Gundam. Probably one of the most popular mobile suit kits in the Gundam Universe right now, because I see a lot of model kit builders build this and add their own interpretation.

Probably the most apt interpretation of this was the recently released HG Beargguy which gave to light what gunpla fans knew for a long time, that this mobile suit looks like a particularly famous woodland creature.

The 1/144 HGUC MSM-04 Acguy is selling for 1025 yen at Amiami, 1120 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1120 yen at Hobby Search
