HG Master Gundam & Fuunsaiki English Manual & Color Guide

HG Master Gundam & Fuunsaiki English Translation Color Guide & Manual
Bandai did an amazing thing this year, and that was to make a 1/144 High Grade rendition of Master Gundam with Fuunsaiki the gigantic mecha horse. Master Gundam can be seen from the G Gundam (Future Century) anime. According to the manual, Fuunsaiki can also be ridden by other HG sized Gundam kits, which is cool in my book!

Who doesn't like horses? As a kid I found an old plastic horse toy of my brother's and made it into noble a stead for my GI Joe Flint figure. Using a black pentel pen I added details like the eyes, tail and mane. I glued some string to make the reins then using ordinary white office paper I fashioned it into a saddle. I rolled a thick one and glued it at the back of the saddle to mimic a sleeping bag, then another roll of paper was glued to the side of the saddle to act as a holster for Flint's rifle. Sadly I have no idea what became of that toy horse nor do I recall why I stopped playing with it. What I can't forget however is copious amounts of time in our garden playing lonesome cowboy with Flint and imagining he was on a solo mission... hehehe

The 1/144 High Grade Master Gundam & Fuunsaiki are selling for $37.33 at Amazon, 1890 yen at Amiami, 2080 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2210 yen at Hobby Search
