An outstanding model kit, the MS-06R-1A High-Mobility Type Zaku II, piloted by the notorious Captain Shin Matsunaga, hails from the renowned "Mobile Suit Gundam MSV-R" series. Often referred to as "White Wolf of Solomon," this model is part of the Master Grade (1/100) line and provides a very realistic and complex portrayal of the fabled mobile suit.

This model's accurate replication of the characteristic spike armor on both shoulders—a special feature of Captain Matsunaga's modified Zaku—is among its most remarkable features. These spike armors are more aggressively shaped than the conventional Zaku versions, which heightens the mobile suit's menacing aspect.

The "White Wolf of Solomon" Captain Shin Matsunaga's personal color scheme is a textured off-white, which is very similar to the color scheme used on the model. The decals and markings are also painstakingly crafted, demonstrating the same attention to detail. To add to the kit's authenticity, a set of freshly created water transfer decals with recognizable symbols like "White Wolf" and the number "23" are included.

Weapons Arsenal

This model has a variety of weapons, as befits a fighting unit with a great degree of mobility. The kit comes with a heat hawk, a large bazooka, a Zaku bazooka, and a Zaku machine gun. This formidable weaponry also includes a larger, new heat hawk, a tribute to Dozle Zabi's Zaku II, highlighting the combat capabilities of the mobile suit.

Enhanced Mobility: Version 2.0
The Zaku II main body's fundamental structure is from the MG Version 2.0, which is recognized for its great range of motion. This enables for dynamic posture and exhibition, demonstrating the mobile suit in a variety of battle settings. The model's mobility and flexibility demonstrate its high-quality design, making it a must-have for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

The pilots provided input to Zeon engineers on how to improve the design of the mobile suit following the successful launch of the MS-06R-1 Zaku II High Mobility Test Type. To address the issue of propellant consumption, the largest modification made to the R-1 is the conversion of the rear and leg fuel tanks into cartridges. The legs in particular are transformed into cylindrical cartridges. A platoon equipped with this unit is to be accompanied by a Zaku outfitted with refill cartridges. This not only makes replenishment easier on the mother ship but also permits replenishment in space. These modifications provide the MS-06R-1A Zaku II High Mobility Type a longer operating time. 



  1. lol Ben Dover, you obviously don't go to r/gunpla, Manpig definitely knows what P-Bandai is, blacksolar212 has the better answer. Bit surprised myself that Bandai would make a second White Wolf Zaku II but I guess MSV-R answers that.

  2. Apparently this is an origin interpretation of shin matsunaga R-1A zaku high mobility.If it true,it kinda fit in as a P-bandai.
