  1. I already have the excellent Zaku type C/C-5, and there's not much here that makes me want to pick this up...

    The same can be said about the new "Red Comet Ver" of Char's Zaku II. The Origin line just has to many Zakus that are too similar.

  2. Oh boy, judging from the design of this Zaku 2, it is pretty much the same ones sent to Side 7 to uncover the V project in the Origin's Manga. The 3 star decal on its head belong to a Lt. Ash, who is apart of the scout team with Gene, Denim, and Slender.

    1. It's also appears in Gundam the Origin VI number 101 unit is Denim's, and yes it's under Char's team, so the movie really connects to the manga

  4. I need this, but now weapon set release, and no legs mobility type.

    Maybe I pass, but I go pick a Char's Zaku.

    1. C5 also have chest option with camera the difference is the vulcan.
      In C5 you have two option of chests, rocket bagpacks, and commander antenna head

      In C6 you have two options shoulder armor

      In C5 you have all the C6 weapons plus machine gun with drum magz (old-style)

      Know, you choose :)

    1. Not really. It's a product designed to keep The Origin line still active at retail while resources are allocated to other product lines. I.e. they want to keep The Origin still active with a simple refresh while they work on Hathaway's Flash and assorted other projects. It's not something that's going to move a lot of units, and they know that. But it's there, you're here checking the news and maintaining that key "engagement" metric.
