MG Zaku II Char Aznable Ver English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade MG MS-06S Zaku II Char Aznable version 2.0 English Construction Manual

Every search for a hero must begin with something which every hero requires, a villain.


That was Dr. Nekhorvich's line in the Mission Impossible II movie 10 years ago. In Mobile Suit Gundam that villian was personified as Char Aznable, as the perfect foil to Amuro Ray. As the series progressed however we get to see that he isn't that much of a villian. In the sequel Zeta Gundam, Char even joined the forces of "good" by siding with AEUG in its battle against the Titans. In Char's Counterattack however, Tomino cast him again at opposites of Amuro Ray. But watching the anime however we can see that there was an "end justifies the means" theme going there for Char that seeks to justify his actions.

The MS-06S Zaku was the iconic mobile suit of Char Aznable in the first episode of Mobile Suit Gundam 0079. Amuro Ray couldn't have become what he was without having gone up against Char Aznable, who has the reputation of being called the Red Comet, the foremost ace of the Principality of Zeon.

The MS-06S Zaku II of Char Aznable is selling for $43.06 at Amazon, 1,834 yen at Amiami, 3500 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2450 yen at HWJapan.
