HG Victory Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

HG Victory Gundam Construction Manual & Color Guide

The Victory Gundam from MS Victory Gundam was released last year by Bandai as a 1/144 High Grade Model Kit. MS Victory Gundam is one of the few anime series in the Gundam line that I haven't watched yet. What appeals to me is that it was penned by "Mr. Gundam" himself, the great Yoshiyuki Tomino. Hence the desire to watch the series.

The HG Victory Gundam is selling for $ at Amazon, 870 yen at Amiami, 960 yen at HobbyLink Japan
