P-Bandai: HGUC 1/144 Doan's Zaku

The kit is provided with newly molded parts portraying damaged armor plates of the Zaku, that is faithful to its movie version, including a newly molded head piece. Some of the inner joints and parts of this kit were shared from the Gundam THE ORIGIN Zaku II.

The kit is also completed with a heat axe as its main weapon and a newly designed water slide decal sheet exclusive for Doan's Zaku.

  1. Nice, I really like the battle damage-molded parts and the overall incongruous/battlefield scavenged parts look. My worry is that the damaged parts will look like crap molded in one color, and that only painting will make them look decent. Still glad to have this kit available though.

    Is this the closest so far to an Origin standard green Zaku II or have they already released one, can't remember.

    1. There are 2 green Zaku II kits: the C/C-5 and the C6/R6. I think the plain C configuration of the first released kit would be the closest to a standard Zaku II.

  2. Kinda weird how these 2 Doan's Island kits are HGUCs rather than The Origin kits, seeing as the movie seems to be in The Origin's version of the OYW.
    Kinda digging the battle damage on Doan though.

  3. Sooooo.... how about a MG Zaku II The Origin? I love seing new kits but this HG overflow and general MG shortage (and slow release schedule) is killing my interest in the hobby...
