Let Gundam Give You a Good Night's Rest with Zaku Eye Masks
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
With the final episode of the Loum Arc of the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin looming on the horizon, Bandai's shopping site "Bankore!" is offering fans a chance to catch some good zzzz's and show their love for the Red Comet with a new Zaku reversible eye mask.
One side of the mask features a MS-06S design, and the other features a MS05-S design, both red for Char's custom version. Although the difference in the two sides is slight, true Gundam fans will be able to point out which one is which.
Bandai started taking pre-orders for the mask on Friday, with planned shipments in December. The mask retails for 1,500 yen (about US$13.40).
The sixth episode of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin, titled "Tanjō Akai Suisei" (Rise of the Red Comet), will open in Japan on May 5.
