MG ACGuy English Manual & Color Guide

MG MSM-04 ACGuy English Translation Color Guide & Manual

The very cute and lovable MSM-04 ACGuy from the original Mobile Suit Gundam anime was released in 2005 as a 1/100 Master Grade model kit by Bandai. Definitely one of the most unique mecha designs ever used by the Principality of Zeon. In the anime, the ACGuy is an Amphibious assault mobile suit and comes equipped with claws and missiles sheathed within its arms. The Gunpla Builders anime series gave a very unique variant of the ACGuy in the form of Beargguy.
