RG GN-001 Gundam Exia English Manual & Color Guide

RG GN-001 Gundam Exia Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Gundam 00 comes the GN-001 Gundam Exia of Setsuna F. Seie released as a 1/144 Real Grade kit by Bandai. The Exia is the melee unit of the secret organization known as Celestial Being as seen in the Gundam 00 anime. Armed with swords and short range weapons as well as the close quarter fighting style of its pilot, it fits the profile to a T.

The GN-001 Exia is a popular mobile suit, owing to its release in different formats, from High Grades, 1/100 No Grade, Master Grades and now it gets the Real Grade treatment. A Perfect Grade was never released but this did have a 1/60 version of this that I happen to have. Had a blast too building the 1/60 GN-001 Exia.

The 1/144 Real Grade GN-001 Exia is selling for $ at Amazon, 1870 yen at Amiami 2000 yen at HobbyLink Japan
