1/35 U.C. Hard Graph Core Fighter English Manual & Color Guide

1/35 FF-X7 Core Fighter Color Guide & Manual

I was truly impressed with this kit the moment that I saw it. Highly detailed rendition of the iconic Core Fighter from the first ever Mobile Suit Gundam. Include in the 1/35 kit is a figure of Amuro Ray, Sayla Mass and a token Deck Crew *snicker* The Core Fighter also transforms to Core Block mode which fits in the chest part of the Gundam.

I can't help but think that the Core Fighter is how the Mobile Suit Gundam establishes its roots to the Giant Robot Series that preceded it before blazing a trail to the Real Robot Series that it anchored.

I remember in almost all of the Giant Robot Series of the 70's there was always a personal craft that the hero used in order to "connect" with the robot. From a logical perspective it doesn't make practical sense since it could be considered as a time waster. But hey!, this is entertainment and the act of boarding the robot via another craft added to the dramatic effect...blah blah blah... old man rambling *snicker*

The 1/35 U.C. Hard Graph FF-X7 Core Fighter is selling for $48.29 at Amazon, 3280 yen at Amiami, 3690 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3825 yen at Hobby Search
