HG Dorado English Manual & Color Guide

HG Dorado Color English Translation Guide & Manual

Another mech from the Gundam AGE anime series was released by Bandai this month and this was the 1/144 High Grade variant of the Dorado. One thing I found interesting about this mech design is the beam rifle that's mounted on a tail at the back. In a mechanical sense it acts as a support for firing and can be quickly stored at the back for travel, quite novel actually. Somebody at Bandai just loves scorpions *snicker*

The 1/144 High Grade Dorado is selling for $ at Amazon, 870 yen at Amiami, 960 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1080 yen at Hobby Search
