MG Hi-Zack English Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade MG RMS-106 Hi-Zack English Color Guide

The RMS-106 Hi-Zack will always have a special place in my heart because it was my first introduction to what a cannon fodder unit was in the Gundam Universe *snicker*.

The Hi-Zack made its appearance in Zeta Gundam. The first ever Gundam series I ever watched was Zeta Gundam and its the series that started my love affair with the Rick Dias.

Back to the Hi-Zack. This was the mass produced mobile suit of the Earth Federation that was also used by the Titans group of Zeta Gundam. It was based on the iconic Zaku II used by the Principality of Zeon as seen in the original Mobile Suit Gundam 0079. Aside from the design of the body, notable carryovers from the original Zaku II was the design of the machine gun, the shield and the heat hawk.
