Released at the same time as what Bandai considers Char’s ‘definitive’ Zaku kit, here’s another Zaku: the 1/144 HG Zaku II Type C6/R6. It’s very similar to its red counterpart, consisting mostly of reused runners from other Zaku kits.
If you already checked out the Red Comet Zaku unboxing, you’re going to see a lot of similarities here. Let’s get to it!
On one side, we get front and back shots of the completed kit (though it’s been painted to look nice), as well as some text about the mobile suit’s background.
Here’s the good stuff. The highlights from Bandai:
- Anti-Ship Rifle ASR-78
- Machine Gun Pod
- Heat Hawk
- Belt-Fed Machine Gun
- Bazooka Type A2
- Various gimmicks let you reproduce realistic action poses from the animation!
- The left shoulder can be chosen to be assembled without spikes.
The stand used in the photos here is the Action Base 5, which you’ll have to pick up separately if you want to recreate these shots and more.
A1: Light green
A2: Dark green
B1: Dark grey
B2: Light teal
C: Light green. These parts, like the red ones in the Char’s Zaku kit, are made of a softer, more flexible plastic.
The miscellaneous parts are generally the same as the red Zaku’s: polycaps, a machine gun belt, and decals — though of course you’re getting different decals with this one.
