MG Turn X English Manual & Color Guide

MG Concept-X 6-1-2 Turn X Construction Manual & Color Guide

It finally happened, Gym Ghingnham's Turn X Gundam from ∀ Gundam gets released as a 1/100 Master Grade model kit by Bandai. I like what they did with this mobile suit, especially the concept of the parts breaking up to function as independent weapons. Talk about innovating the concept of fin funnel weapons. I love the design and color scheme of this model kit, much more than the titular Turn A Gundam. Nothing new there, as I usually prefer the designs of the antagonist mobile suits in the Universal Century storyline.

The 1/100 MG Concept-X 6-1-2 Turn X is selling for $ at Amazon, 4480 yen at Amiami, 4800 yen at HobbyLink Japan
