MG RX-78-2 Gundam ver. 3.0 English Manual

MG RX-78-2 Gundam ver. 3.0 Construction Manual

Released in August by Bandai was the much anticipated 1/100 Master Grade RX-78-2 Gundam ver 3.0 of Amuro Ray from the original Mobile Suit Gundam anime series. This particular version gets to benefit from the manufacturing advancements of the Real Grade line. But probably the most thing I'm happy about is the fact that the color guide of this particular Master Grade release is already translated into English. Nice to see that Bandai is finally taking notice of to the requests of their overseas fanbase.

The Master Grade RX-78-2 Gundam Ver 3.0 is selling for $ at Amazon.
