HG ZII English Manual & Color Guide

HG ZII Construction Manual & Color Guide

A beatifully crafted version of the iconic Zeta Gundam of Kamille Bidan from the Zeta Gundam series by Bandai in the form of the ZII. As I've mentioned before in this site, Zeta Gundam has always been special to me because it was the first Gundam series for me and was what started the fire in me for me admiration of the Gundam series. Is it just me or does the lower half of the ZII have that Gundam Thrones vibe going for it? What with the enlarged feet and all.

The 1/144 High Grade ZII is selling for $ at Amazon.
