HG Dreissen (Unicorn Ver.) English Manual & Color Guide

HGUC AMX-009 Dreissen (Unicorn Ver.) English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Was excited to see the 1/144 High Grade AMX-009 Dreissen come out as I am a fan of mobile suits patterned after the MS-09 Dom design. This variant of the Dreissen was seen in the ongoing Gundam UC OVA as part of the mobile suit force of the Neo Zeon.

I'd love to see this come out as a 1/100 Master Grade but I guess that all depends on whether Bandai see's potential in this design as being able to sell a lot of units in order to merit a turn at the Master Grade level.

The 1/144 HGUC AMX-009 Dreissen (Unicorn Ver.) is selling for $$$ at Amazon, 1460 yen at Amiami, 1600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1700 yen at Hobby Search
