RG Wing Gundam Zero EW English Manual & Color Guide

RG Wing Gundam Zero EW Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released last year by Bandai for their Real Grade line was the Wing Gundam Zero EW of Hero Yuii from the Gundam Wing Anime series.

I remember going through some hobby shops in 2000 in Japan and being fascinated by the PG Wing Gundam, because of it's massive size and angelic wings. I had an inkling already about Gundams at that time but didn't really know much about the story. It was only when I watched Zeta Gundam that I was introduced to the entire Gundam Franchise. After watching that that was then the time that I got hooked on Gundams, so yeah Zeta Gundam and its corresponding mecha has a special place in my heart. I guess to most people in North America Wing Gundam is their entry point into the Gundam Franchise, because it was aired extensively there (from what I heard).

The 1/144 RG Wing Gundam Zero EW is selling for $27.62.
