MG RGM-79 GM v2.0 English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade MG RGM-79 GM v2.0 English Manual and Color Guide

The venerable RGM-79 GM from Mobile Suit Gundam with a design that reflects the era it came from. Basically the late 70's when disco was still in, along with platform shoes, polyester and every conceivable piece of clothing was flared (pants to colars, etc). I remember the first time seeing this and wondering why it had the same green shade as a bathroom tile *snicker*

But enough with dissing the RGM-79 GM. This suit was what made victory over Zeon possible by the Earth Federation. Owing to its mass production and sheer power in numbers.

The Master Grade RGM-79 GM v2.0 is selling for 2568 yen at Amiami, 2800 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2800 yen at Hobby Search
