HG GPB-X80J Beginning J Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

HG GPB-X80J Beginning J Gundam English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Released this month is the 1/144 High Grade GPB-X80J Beginning J Gundam from Gunpla Builders. Its quite novel what Bandai did in introducing the Gunpla Builders Series of anime.

In the anime the story revolves around the concept of using a Gunpla that the protagonists built as a mobile suit in a MMORPG that they can pilot. How it works is that it is first scanned into a computer then made playable. In a nutshell you could say that the anime series is a marketing vehicle by Bandai to brainwash the next generation of paint fume and plastic dust sniffing, plastic cutting zealots *snicker*

The 1/144 High Grade GPB-X80J Beginning J Gundam is selling for $$ at Amazon, 1160 yen at Amiami, 1280 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1360 yen at Hobby Search
