1/60 Break Blade Fafnir English Manual & Color Guide

1/60 Break Blade Fafnir English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Released in August of 2010 was a 1/60 scale Fafnir by Kotobukiya from the Break Blade anime that was marketed as Broken Blade in some parts. The Fafnir is a Golem, or the common term for a quartz powered mecha from the Break Blade universe. The Fafnir is the cannon fodder mecha of the Krishna nation that was under siege by the forces of the Athens Commonwealth.

Straight up the Fafnir is no match for the mecha of the Athens Commonwealth. Shooting weapons alone, it lacked the range of the Eltemus. If it weren't for the timely arrival of the mysterious Delphine Golem to break the planned commando assault of the squad of raiding Eltemus of Athens, Krishna would have surely fallen already. And that, would have made it one of the shortest anime stories ever... *snicker*

The 1/60 Fafnir Golem from Break Blade by Kotobukiya is selling for 2800 at HobbyLink Japan, 2975 yen at Hobby Search.
