HG Rozen Zulu English Manual & Color Guide

HG Rozen Zulu English Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released this month by Bandai was the Rozen Zulu as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. The Rozen Zulu makes its appearance from the currently ongoing Gundam UC (Gundam Unicorn) OVA series.

Am actually looking forward to watching the next installment of the ongoing Gundam Unicorn OVA. The last episode was particularly good, but the one before that had great action scenes but too much whining from Banagher Links, the series protagonist. Kinda reminded me of Gundam Seed all over again...*snicker*

The 1/144 HG Rozen Zulu is selling for $ at Amazon, 2240 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2380 yen at Hobby Search
