HG Genoace English Manual & Color Guide

HG Genoace Color English Translation Guide & Manual

Released this month was the 1/144 High Grade rendition of the Genoace mobile suit from the latest Gundam anime, Gundam AGE. Aside from the High Grade variant, Bandai also released an AG variant of the Genoace a little bit earlier.

I've been trying to put my finger on this for quite a while, why this mobile suit looks so familiar. Then it dawned on me, it looks like the Cyclone motorcycle powered armor suit from Genesis Climber Mospeada... hehehe...video below to give you an idea what I'm talking about.



The 1/144 HG Genoace is selling for 880 yen at Amiami, 960 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1080 yen at Hobby Search
