MG Lukas's Strike E + I.W.S.P. English Color Guide & Manual

MG GAT-X105E Lukas's Strike E + I.W.S.P. English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Released in 2008 by Bandai was the 1/100 Master Grade variant of the GAT-X105E Strike E + I.W.S.P. of Lucas O'donnell from one of the Gundam Seed side stories released by the franchise to add further color to the Gundam Universe.

The Strike E of Lucas O'donnel is a variant of the Strike Gundam piloted by Kira Yamato, differing with having an IWSP back pack and having a shield with different design. Love that Gatling Gun in the shield, but to quote French General Pierre Bosquet, with regards to the Charge of the Light Brigade; "C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas la guerre." ("It is magnificent, but it is not war.") I know its science fiction, but any weapons designer worth his salt would know to never place a combustible weapon right next to a defensive implement, least they explode.

The MG GAT-X105E Lukas's Strike E + I.W.S.P. is selling for $ at Amazon, 3302 yen at Amiami, 3600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3600 yen at Hobby Search
