Book Review: 機動戦士ガンダムMS大全集〈2009〉MOBILE SUIT Illustrated 2009

機動戦士ガンダムMS大全集 (2009), or MOBILE SUIT Illustrated 2009, is the catalogue of all the Gundam every produced, as of 2009. There are hundreds of designs inside.

The book is split into two parts. The first part is coloured art of the the Gundam designs and the second part is the line art for those designs. The latter part is also thicker because it has more views. It's a good resource for mecha designs but there are no direct front or side views.

The Mobile Suits themselves are arranged into four categories:

  • Universal Century
  • Experimental & Event Movie
  • Another Century
  • Games Variation

The only series I've watched are the Gundam Wing and Gundam Wing Endless Waltz. So most of the designs in this book is totally new. I'm surprised to see that there's a Mobile Suit (MS), from the Mobile Fighter G Gundam, that can transform into a windmill. There are also lots of cool weapons and guns but some are printed a bit too small.

This book is for the ultimate fans.
