Gundam Seed = Cool. Gundam Seed High Grades = INTENSE! Here's a high-grade version of the heavily-armored Duel Gundam Assault Shroud mecha from Gundam Seed. You to build the machine in either armored or standard form--and, if you're careful, you can take the armor back off after assembly, too! Very cool! Duel Gundam Assault Shroud is pre-colored and snap-together, so paint and glue are not needed to complete it. Like all Bandai Japan models, the instructions for assembly are in Japanese, but they feature very clear, easy-to-follow pictures. The model is brand new, and its parts are completely sealed. Gundam Seed is one of the newest Gundam lines, and Bandai Japan is only producing small numbers of the kits at this time. Don't wait on ordering this Duel Gundam Assault Shroud kit--or any other of the Gundam Seed models; they may be sold out if you do!
