Gundam Head Ashtray: Who’s Been Putting Their Coals Out in My Mobile Suit?

 |  |  |  |  |

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but Japan can be a weird place. At least if you judge the country strictly by the oddball gadgets and toys that they release, on a regular basis, they are. Take, for example, this wacky bit of Gundam-inspired schwag from the island nation.


What you’re looking at here is the brand-spanking-new Gundam Illumination Ashtray. Based on either the head of Zaku II (MS-06S) or Gouf (MS-07B), these ashtrays are just the thing for the Gundam fan/smoker who has everything. And I’m sure you know dozens of people who fit that bill, right?


They’re designed for use in your car, are easy to clean out, and even offers LED illumination so you can see where you’re stubbing out your cigarette butts.

Personally, if I did smoke, I’d rather have one that looks like a complete Mobile Suit, with all its weapons, instead of just a decapitated one. But if you don’t care, you can get your hands on one over at StrapyaWorld for about $35 (USD).
