Gundam Encyclopedia Book


















An old Gundam Encyclopedia consisting of 143 pages, found on my shelf with coloured pictures and sketches of up to 201 Mobile Suits during the Universal Timeline. MS ranging from those in conceptualization to manga, anime and even MSVariant. I can't find the publishing date but it was most probably published before 1991 because MS from Gundam 0083 and Gundam 08th MS Team were included. Like most Gundam illustration book, this was also printed in Japanese language. As you can see from the pics, the MS featured were drawn in an old-skool manner with a feel of nostalgia.

It's a pity they kill off Amuro Ray from UC so soon in the past. I do have 'Gihren's Ambition' on PS2 but the starting part was difficult playing E.F.S.F, so I stopped after a while.

Oh yes, some of those prototypes unit from Zeon that appeared only in manga do looked monstrous which condemn they was villain from their appearance.
