HG Zee Zulu English Manual & Color Guide

HG AMS-129M Zee Zulu English Translation Color Guide & Manual
Seen in Episode 4 of the Gundam Unicorn OVA was the Zee Zulu. This was also released last month by Bandai as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. This post would not be complete without me mentioning that Gundam Unicorn Episode 4 had spectacular fight scenes in them depicting this mobile suit in action.

This Zeon aquatic mobile suit comes armed with a beam machine gun (in a water proof case), heat knife and iron nails at the hands. For aquatic mobility it comes equipped with some swimming fins for its feet and a ballast tank at its waist. Before seeing this manual I used to think that the Zee Zulus were built in the line of the Z'Gok's and other aquatic mecha of Zeon. But now I see that its more like an underwater Frogman, where in its aquatic capabilities are add-ons and not specifically built in. This way it can fully function on land and not be hindered by its underwater capabilities.

The 1/144 AMS-129M Zee Zulu is selling for $31.80 at Amazon, 1600 yen at Amiami, 1760 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1870 yen at Hobby Search.
