This just in:
Gundam Mechanics V (2000.3.10, Hobby Japan, ISBN4-89425-219-8) 96 "pages"
(48 in color) for ¥1,905.
As with previous GM (!) books, this is a collection of 48 A5-notebook sized
cards (six-hole punched) bound between wraparound covers with a matching
slipcase. Each card is color on the recto side, B&W line art and specs on
the verso side.
GM5 covers the MS and MA from Gundam F91 and V Gundam or, more preceisely,
from UC 0123 to 0153. It's the last run of mechanics in the UC timeline,
barring a collection of G-Saviour, Gaia Gear and Turn A stuff. If the
series continues, it'll have to do so with the alternate universe
mechanics. Or maybe the ships and other mecha that are conspicuous by
their absence from this volume.
Included in this volume are:
F91 Gundam Formula 91
RXR-44 Guntank R-44
RGM-89R Jegan Type-A
RGM-89J Jegan Type-B
RGM-109 Heavy Gun
XMA-01 Lafressia -- I was expecting "Rafflesia" to be made official here
LM111E02 Gun EZ
LM111E05 Gun Blaster
LM312V04 Victory Gundam
LM312V04+SD-VB03A V-Dash Gundam
LM314V21 V2 Gundam
LM314V23 V2 Buster Gundam
LM314V24 V2 Assault Gundam
V2 Assault Buster Gundam -- no model number!
ZM-S19S Shy-Tarn -- not "Shaitan"
ZMT-S33S Gottrlatan -- And just how are we supposed to PRONOUNCE that?
And, apropos of nothing, I noted the following on my way to work the other day:
Zion Lutheran Church
Gundam ... it's everywhere!
