RG Freedom Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

RG ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Kira Yamato's Freedom Gundam was released this month as a 1/144 Real Grade kit by Bandai. Freedom Gundam came out in the latter part of Gundam Seed and at the beginning episodes of Gundam Seed Destiny. It differs from most of the mobile suits in its era by the presence of a nuclear reactor in it's frame allowing it to function indefinitely. It is notably armed with Rail Guns and Plasma Beam Cannons sticking out from its waist and from its wings. The Freedom Gundam was suceeded by the Strike Freedom Gundam in the Gundam Seed Destiny anime.

It has to be pointed out that the Freedom Gundam was developed by ZAFT and by the aide of Lacus Clyne (also from ZAFT) was stolen by both of them with the intention of stopping the war between the Earth Federation and ZAFT.

The 1/144 Real Grade ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam is selling for $ at Amazon, 2000 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2125 yen at Hobby Search
