Gundam CCA Sazabi Mechanical Bust Gashapon Revealed

The collection will consist of three items. The Sazabi’s exterior parts will be available in two different variations: The regular red-colored parts and another with translucent clear parts. There will also be an inner frame set that exclusively contains features like the mono-eye camera and the Scattering Mega Particle Cannon on the torso.

The items will have the same price tag of 500 yen (~$3.30). But as this lineup is available via gashapon, people will receive the products at random even if they purchase three items. In order to make a complete version, one will have to obtain the inner frame and one of the exteriors. Each item will have roughly the same 1/3 probability, although the red exterior will have a slightly higher chance at 33.34% compared to the other two’s 33.33%.

Here’s how each Gundam gashapon entry will look like when assembled on its own:

Bandai has been releasing numerous merchandise related to the Gundam franchise. In January 2024, it revealed acrylic stands of logos from the first Mobile Suit Gundam and Char’s Counterattack that can glow in the dark.

Bandai will close online pre-orders for the MSN-04 Sazabi mechanical bust gashapon on April 12, 2024. It will deliver the prizes in late July 2024. The company noted that it may also release the items in physical gashapon capsule toy vending machines.
