So who is Char Anzable?
Char Aznable is the main antagonist of the original Mobile Suit Gundam series. He is one of the main characters of the Universal Century timeline.
Char is the charismatic, vengeful, and prideful leader of the Zeon forces. Originally just a pilot he showed great potential as an ace and became well known for his skill piloting mobile suits.
However, his personality and capability as a tactician made him an attractive leader for the Zeon forces.
When we said Ace pilot. He was an ACE.
As you can see, aside from his incredible skill. Char is a tad grandiose. His signature Red Zaku 2 is appropriately nicknamed the “ Red Comet ”
He rose to power and became a powerful asset to the Zeon forces. Char is a diverse character and has undergone great change throughout the long-running Universal Century timeline of Mobile Suit Gundam.
He and Amuro Ray feuded as their respective governments waged a war. Some of the most iconic moments of the series were when they did battle.
Char appears in multiple series of Mobile Suit Gundam. Even becoming a protagonist in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam.
As you can see while Char has gone under many visual transformations he is still best remembered for his iconic helmet.
Mobile Suit Gundams remains one of the most iconic franchises in mecha history. Originally introduced in 1979 the franchise has seen a staggering number of different series, manga, games and even created one of the most popular forms of collectible in the world! Gunpla!

So what better way to celebrate the 40th anniversary than to check out an awesome Gundam Figurine!
RX-93 v Gundam
This 1/144 scale figure is a Real Grade version of the RX-93 v Gundam. This pristinely detailed piece is a fantastic recreation of the iconic mobile suit. It is completely posable, with an interlocking skeleton and stands that allow you to place the Gundam or the Fin Funnels, one of the most devastating weapons in all of Mobile Suit!
For those of you who want to claim a dedication to Gundam sooner than March 2020 can check out this Bandai special expected to release on December 2019.
The RX-93 Gundam was piloted by Amuro and was considered a true upgrade to his previous Mobile suit the RX-78-2. It was designed to do battle against Char’s terrifying MSN-04 Shazabi Gundam.
One of the most powerful Gundams that Char ever piloted!
What made this Gundam really special were the Fin Funnel weapons. That would come apart from the wing on the Gundams back.
As you can see in the figure these Funnels had their own propulsion systems and would zip around the battlefield surrounding enemies and pestering them with deadly blasts.
This weapon is unique to the RX-93 and also the most expensive aspect. They are very costly to produce so they are seldom available to many Gundams.
They were also able to generate a beam shield in unison that would protect the mobile suit from beam and projectile attacks.
These funnels had a greater range of movement compared to the typical funnel technology making them extremely deadly and an awesome aspect of the appearance of this figure!
You can see Amuro and Char’s rivalry spanned multiple wars and conflicts.
It is hard to imagine what the world be like if we didn’t have Gundam!
