Bandai Offering Char ‘The Red Comet’ Aznable Insignia Merchandise

Premium Bandai has released a series of merchandise inspired heavily by Char Aznable of Mobile Suit Gundam. Merchandise from duvet covers to floor mats are all a deep red and bear Char’s insignia, along with his name in large font. In addition, his title “The Red Comet” appears below his name. It makes for a rather unsubtle way to show one’s love for the character. Pre-orders for the items are open from June 4 until 21, 2021. They will ship out in September 2021.
