HG RGM-86R GM III English Manual & Color Guide

HGUC RGM-86R GM III Color Guide & Manual
GM III that came out in the second episode of Gundam UC OVA and was made into a 1/144 High Grade kit by Bandai. GM's are the cannon fodder units in the Gundam universe that make the bad guys like good whenever they blow them up. This is as opposed to the Zaku, which makes the good guys look good *snicker*

Can't wait for the next episode of Gundam UC to come out in the latter part of this year. I haven't read the original novel so I'm just relying on the OVA to educate me as to what the story of Gundam Unicorn is about. So far it has not disappointed me in terms of the quality of the story. Aside from the mystery of the Laplace box (which you can google in order to find out what it really is about), I'm touched by the sadness of the Marida Cruz story arc that delves on the life of these manufactured New Types and how they are just viewed as "things" and not persons by their Zeon Masters.

The 1/144 HGUC RGM-86R GM III is selling for 1100 yen at Amiami, 1200 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1275 yen at Hobby Search
