Gundam fans have some sweet new collectables, and they look amazing. This collection of Gundam-themed G-SHOCK watches from CASIO are made to celebrate Gundam’s 40th anniversary. Can you believe the mech franchise been around for four decades?
There are four watches in the series, each with colors and designs inspired by Gundam, including RX-78-2 Gundam, MS-06S Char’s Zaku II, RX-0 Unicorn Gundam, and RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee.
Aside from good looks, each of these watches comes with a “Haro” storage container with the RX-78-2 Gundam, RX-0 Unicorn Gundam, and RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee in Green Haro while Char’s Zaku in Zaku Red Haro storage. In case you didn’t know, “Haro” is the ball-like robot that can transform from ball to robot.
The Casio G-SHOCK x Gundam Collection will be available on CASIO’s China ecommerce store on Taobao in mid-2019. The RX-78-2 is 1,390 yuan (~$207 USD), Char’s Zaku II is 1,090 yuan ($163 USD), RX-0 Unicorn Gundam is 1,090 yuan (~$163 USD) and the Banshee is 1,690 yuan (~$252 USD).
Aside from looking way cooler, these watches are pretty much the same G-SHOCKs you know already, with all the same features and functionality.
