MG Sazabi Ver Ka English Manual & Color Guide

MG Sazabi Ver Ka Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released last December by Bandai was the massive Sazabi of Char Aznable from Char's Counterattack as a 1/100 Master Grade model kit. The Katoki version of this beloved mecha design is definitely a sight to behold with the added details and gimmicks. The one thing I've always loved about the Sazabi, aside from its design and color scheme is its size. I'm a sucker for large mecha, hits the sweet spot like a tall, cold glass of iced tea on a hot summers day. I love how Bandai is revisiting classic designs and spicing them up a bit, this way they get to benefit from the advancements of this days molding technology, which results in more finite details in the model kits.
