HG Gundam AGE-FX English Color Guide & Manual

HG Gundam AGE-FX English Translation Color Guide & Manual
One of the latest releases by Bandai for the month of August is the 1/144 High Grade model kit of Kio Asuno's Gundam AGE-FX from the Gundam AGE anime series. This mecha comes equipped with a rifle (whose name I can't prounounce: Stangull? Sutangur???) that can convert to bazooka mode as well as the staple of Newtypes in the Gundam UC universe, Funnels. But in this variant it is referred to as C-Funnel. Great stand design too where you can display the funnels in a circular arc for that dramatic pose.

The 1/144 High Grade Gundam AGE-FX is selling for $ at Amazon, 1160 yen at Amiami, 1280 yen at HobbyLInk Japan, 1440 yen at Hobby Search
