Toyota unveiled their collaboration and Char Anzable, the antagonist of Mobile Suit Gundam, on Saturday at Japan's Chara-Hobby 2012 event. The project was indeed a specialised custom Toyota Auris in Char's signature matte red. The Auris (known as the Corolla in Australia) was modified by Toyota Modellista International and has a range of homages including customised antenna, light up Zeon badges and original bodywork wrapping.
Speaking of Gundam. It's creator, Yoshiyuki Tomino, was recently interviewed and revealed that his G-Reko project was entering into production as the scenario work was complete. Tomino also stated that while he would like to draw the storyboards for the new series, doing so may be impossible.
