MG Figurerise Monkey D. Luffy English Manual & Color Guide

1/8 MG Figurerise Monkey D. Luffy English Translated Color Guide & Manual
Monkey D. Luffy, protagonist of the One Piece anime series, was recently made into a 1/8 MG Figurerise model kit by Bandai. Characteristic of Bandai, this model figure kit is highly detailed and with impressive articulation. Monkey D. Luffy has the power of elastic arms, so the kit comes with spare hands in "extended mode"

I haven't tried figure building before and just looking at it makes me not want to touch it with a ten foot pole because of the utter hopelessness I feel knowing that I can never do the kit justice with my meager painting skills. Luckily the MG Figurerise series of Bandai comes in molded part colors, so you don't have to paint it anymore after assembling. If incase you want to paint it however, the manual comes with a color guide.

The 1/8 MG Figurerise Monkey D. Luffy is selling for 2760 yen at Amiami, 3040 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 3230 yen at Hobby Search
