HG Zssa (Unicorn Ver) English Manual & Color Guide

HG Zssa (Unicorn Ver) Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Gundam Unicorn comes the Zssa, released as a 1/144 High Grade model kit by Bandai. The Zssa first made its appearance in the ZZ Gundam series. I love the design of this, particularly because of the green color scheme and the seeming uniqueness of the design. Most Zeon mobile suits are always a derivative or pay homage to an older suit. But this one looks unique in its own right. It has that Hunchback of Notre Dame look going for it *snicker*. But kidding aside I really am infatuated with this mobile suit.


The 1/144 HG Zssa from Unicorn Gundam is selling for $ at Amazon, 1790 yen at Amiami, 1920 yen at HobbyLink Japan
