HMM Lightning Saix English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 Zoids Lightning Saix HMM English Translation Color Guide & Manual

If ever there was a need for an apt description of the hounds of hell, then the Lightning Saix would probably fit that requirement to a "T". Lightning fast on land and lethally furious as shown by how it performed in the tournament battles of Zoids New Century Zero. Pilots of this Zoid type usually have the land speed advantage over opponents. But aside from its swiftness it also packs quite an arsenal, not limited to just melee type combat but also for ranged sorties.

Continuing this sudden urge of mine to delve into the fabulous mecha of the Zoid universe, I decided to translate the Color Guide & Manual for the Lightning Saix. Not sure, but after googling this, I don't think there is an actual animal named Saix.

The Kotobukiya 1/72 Lightning Saix HMM Color Guide & Manual is selling for $$$ at Amazon, 3280 yen at Amiami, 3600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3825 yen at Hobby Search
