HG 00 Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

HG GN-0000 00 Gundam Color Guide & Manual

Released in 2008 was the 1/144 High Grade version of the iconic 00 Gundam which was the flagship mobile suit of Gundam 00 Season 2. What set the 00 Gundam from the regular mobile suit of Celestial Being was the fact that it had twin GN drives installed on it which were taken from the 0 Gundam and Gundam Exia. The 00 Gundam design has gone a long way from this High Grade kit, with Bandai having released Master Grades and Perfect Grade variants of this awesome mobile suit.

The 1/144 HG 00 Gundam is selling for $$$ at Amazon, 732 yen at Amiami, 800 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 850 yen at Hobby Search
