MG Blitz Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

MG Blitz Gundam English Color Guide & Construction Manual

Nicol Amalfi's Blitz Gundam from Gundam Seed was recently released by Bandai as 1/100 Master Grade model kit. The Blitz Gundam was stolen by a ZAFT commando unit, in which Nicol Amalfi was part of, from the Earth Federation's secret development site. The Blitz Gundam is unique because of the Mirage Colloid system that it employs that makes it invisible to detection.

In its stealth mode however, the Blitz Gundam is more vulnerable to attack as most of the systems of the Gundam are focused on keeping the Blitz invisible to detection. Least I forget, Nicol Amalfi is also a brilliant musician, as seen in the Gundam Seed anime *snicker*

The 1/100 MG Blitz Gundam from Gundam Seed is selling for $ at Amazon, 3200 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3400 yen at Hobby Search.
