Gundam SEED and Cup no Fuchiko Unite for an Adorably Epic Collectible Collaboration!

Ichiban Kuji's latest collaboration with the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED brand, slated to debut in Japan on Friday, March 15, 2024, promises to delight lovers of both the Gundam universe and Cup no Fuchiko collectors. This special alliance commemorates two milestones: the 20th anniversary of the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED series and the successful premiere of the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Freedom film in January 2024.

The collab features an exclusive line of memorabilia that combines Gundam SEED's classic mecha designs with Cup no Fuchiko's whimsical charm. The Ichiban Kuji Mobile Suit Gundam SEED x Cup no Fuchiko series, priced at 800 yen (with a 10% tax), will be sold sequentially in certain retail outlets including as bookstores, hobby shops, selected game centers, the Ichiban Kuji official shop, and online. Fans are recommended to stay informed of any potential changes to the release schedule or availability.

This collection is a unique combination of two popular franchises. The collaboration, which includes tiny models of Gundam SEED characters in Cup no Fuchiko's distinctive stances as well as unusual themed goods such as keychains and mini-figures, provides a different take on fandom memorabilia. Characters like Athrun Zala, Kira Yamato, and Lacus Clyne are reinvented in Cup no Fuchiko's appealing style, making them a welcome addition to any collection.

The line-up includes a variety of prizes, such as:

Prize A: A Freedom Gundam x Fuchiko Cup Figure, showcasing Fuchiko in a Flay Allster costume atop Freedom Gundam's head.

Prize B: A Kira Yamato cup figure from episode 39 of the anime, designed to perch on your cup's edge.

Prize C: A similar Athrun Zala figure, also from episode 39, ready to adorn your cup.

Prize D: A figure of Lacus Clyne, capturing her gentle presence, perfect for cup-edge decoration.

Prize E: Famous Scene Glass, with three designs inspired by pivotal moments from the anime, including episode 39 and the iconic pre-commercial scene.

Prize F: Hand towels featuring original illustrations by Katsuki Tanaka, the creator of Fuchiko the Cup.

Prize G: Frame stands, also illustrated by Katsuki Tanaka, offering a unique decorative element.

Prize H: Acrylic charms, each adorned with Tanaka's original artwork, adding a personal touch to your collection.

Last One Prize: An alternate color version of the Freedom Gundam x Fuchiko Cup Figure, with a pearl paint finish, available to the lucky individual who draws the last lottery ticket.
