1/72 HMM Lightning Saix Irvine Special English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 HMM Lightning Saix Irvine Special Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released by Kotobukiya as a 1/72 Highend Master Model is Irvine's Lightning Saix from Zoids Guardian Force. Prior to this, Kotobukiya had already released a 1/72 HMM Lightning Saix. Most noticeable difference of this version is the mouth binder that grips between the fangs of the Lightning Saix. Always loved the design of the Lightning Saix, but then again, I've always been impressed with the way the creator of Zoids was able to "mechanize" animals.

The 1/72 HMM Lightning Saix Irvine Special is selling for $66.77 at Amazon, 4930 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 4930 yen at Hobby Search
