  1. Trying to figure out how this got MG treatment and the Zaku II Kai got made into an RE.

    1. You make an extremely compelling point

    2. It's a matter of investment. This one can be used as a base for every variation of the Zaku Warrior in SEED with almost no modifications, hell the regular Zaku Warrior is simply a green version of this. Meanwhile, the Zaku II FZ would be just a grunt suit with no variations so not enough reuse potential to push out... I know it sucks but just think how much it costs to develop a modern MG kit...

    3. Because it will be cheaper and more benefiting for Bandai if they can re-use the frame to make more variants rather than making a completely new one. Simply speaking, Bandai will only release kits which are potential to be 'milked'.

    4. Yeah, but...who will be buying all these MG Zaku Warrior variants?

      There's no market...

      Don't underestimate how much the Japanese love Gundam SEED Destiny, even if most of the time that leads to them buying more Strike Freedoms.

      Seed Zaku is BEST Zaku

  2. This has potentially more P-Bandai variants?

    1. Standard Version
      Dearka Version
      Yzak Version
      Ray Version

      That's just off the top of my head, there are more obscure Zaku warrior variants like the Zaku splendor they could release.
      And maybe even the Gouf Ignited

    2. You can add also the Slash Zaku Warrior and Kerberus Zaku Warrior. Zaku Warriors has so many variation more than you expect. Its normal that Bandai will milk it and rather reproduce new variations on P-Bandai. Just wait for it, they will come.

  4. Gimme that P-Bandai Live Concert Ver. that I know is gonna drop

  6. If this has the Zaku 2.0 as a base, it will be fine. I am just flabbergasted that Bandai is releasing a grunt suit from a 15 year old series. But whatever, it is a cool suit in nice colors. 100% buy for me. I bet we see Rey's Zaku Phantom in the future, as well as some of the other variants (Gouf Ignited?).

    Honestly, I wish they had come out with the Ginn instead. Much cooler looking suit.

    1. "flabbergasted that Bandai is releasing a grunt suit from a 15 year old series"

      Uhhh are you familiar with the jegan and gm sniper II??

      Delete
    2. Those are UC suits, not Alternate Universe. It is kind of a different sort of thing. And the Jegan at least was featured in Unicorn.

      I am not mad that they are releasing these kits, on the contrary. I like the Zaku Warrior. I look forward to the P-Bandai variations too. It is a cool design. I still would rather have had the GINN, but I will take the Zaku Warrior. Hopefully we get stuff like the Dagger and its variants too.

  7. This shows how bandai really loves SEED

    1. For whatever reason, it is one of the most popular Gundam series ever in Japan. It has some cool designs for sure, but the anime was largely trash.

      That said, bring on the Dagger variants!

    2. SEED is good tho but seed destiny is trash

  8. Sold, no questions or discounts asked! Now i want the 4 other variants!

  9. Bandai, give us Infinite Justice 2.0!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Simple, this can develop into other variant which can become P Bandai and zaku FZ does not .

  11. i smell P-Bandai slash zaku phantom, damn i want it so bad.. hopefully it's not p-bandai

    ReplyDelete
  12. Dang Bandai going all out on this one. It looks like the brought back the cloth piping to connect the gun to the backpack.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Correct me if i'm wrong,Does it use the old zaku 2.0 frame?or a completely new frame?

    ReplyDelete
  14. But can I stick the Gunner backpack on the back of my Blue Frame?
