Zeta Gundam Memorial Box - Part I

Topics: 

Over the past few years I've seen a couple folks share images of their Laserdisc Zeta Gundam Memorial Boxset and I eventually picked up a set for myself. Laserdisc? Well, apparently it has all the original openings and endings in great quality without some of the issues on the US DVD release. Don't ask me, I have no plans of picking up a Laserdisc player to find out. I got them for the really cool artwork and, to me, collector value. They ended up being away more impressive than I originally thought so I figured I'd snap a bunch of photos and share 'em for anyone interested.

The Zeta Gundam Memorial Box comes in two separate boxes featuring 13 discs and two full colour booklets. Each disc comes in a full colour sleeve, most of them gatefold, with even more photos and information. Most of the images I've seen before, and if possible, I tried to follow each with a link to a proper high-er res scan. Since this is an image heavy post, I'll be splitting the gallery over two pages, one for each box. Second section to follow in a day or two.

The front of the booklet that comes with the box set (nothing on the back). The text reads:

So•••, Warlike blood flow in human being,
like you?
Zeta,
it's a roar of mortals!
Even that is last hope,
crimson mobile star;
CHAR
flap away•••!
And now,
CAMILLE=VIDAN
will find tear of the age•••.
