1/72 Destroid Spartan English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 Destroid Spartan MBR-07-MKII Color Guide & Manual
1/72 Destroid Spartan originally made by Imai in the 80's, then the molds were bought by Bandai and the kits were republished last year. Spartans formed part of the non flying mecha contingent of the SDF Macross from the anime series of the same name.

Probably the most famous pilot of the Destroid Spartan was series protagonist, Hikaru Ichijo, himself. He donned the suit temporarily to take care of some troublesome Zentradi who were having a hard time adjusting to civilian life during the latter part of the series.

Insert customary *I wish Yamato Toys* would make a 1/60 version of this mecha ... hehehe... seriously though, I wish they did.

The 1/72 Destroid Spartan by Bandai/Imai is selling for $$$ at Amazon, 1450 yen at Amiami, 1600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1700 yen at Hobby Search
