Haro x Square (total 9 in collection - 2 are secret designs)

Words from the designer
I have a secret, well it’s not a secret really, but my favourite character in Gundam is Haro, the idea of Haro is too cool – a personal assistant, a buddy that has been consistently part of the Gundam story. The wonderful simple design conceals the complexity of Haro’s look, so simple yet so expressive and beguiling. When the chance came about to combine the wonderful Haro with my WWR Square it was a marriage in Robot Heaven! I can’t express how much I dig the resulting amalgamation, it seems natural and hopefully the design could sit in any world or universe! 

It goes without saying that I have an enduring love for Gundam, from the beginning through its many evolutions, it’s certainly a joy to be able to play in the Gundam universe! My admiration goes  to the many amazing artists and writers  that have brought these stories to life!!!
