Mobile Suit Gundam Fans have been clamoring for their plastic Gundam models during this quarantine thanks in part to the coronavirus pandemic, but now the legendary mech series is giving fans the chance to add one. The series’ most popular mech, Zaku 2, comes to their office with their own tape dispenser! Needless to say, while the Gundam has been on a variety of different items over the years, this newest office gadget is definitely one of the weirdest we’ve seen so far and will lets you truly show off your love for Gundam!
The Zaku unit is the mech of choice for Char, the original̵7;s first major villain Mobile Suit Gundam anime, and is a competitor to the Gundam unit as part of the Duchy of Zeon. Although the Zaku were never thought to be as powerful or recognizable as the original Gundam units, they made for some excellent “forage” throughout the Universal Century storylines. With the next feature length taking place in the same universe as the original anime in Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway’s Flash, expect to see some Zaku appear in this brand-new story following the spiritual successors of both Char and Amuro.
Twitter user HobbyLink shared a first look at the unique ice dispenser that takes a Zaku’s head / helmet and uses it as a traditional office gadget that could allow fans Mobile Suit Gundam to show how much they love the legendary mech series:
