Mobile Suit Gundam is one of the most famous anime franchises that has reached the whole world. It started from the original series with the “Universal Century” timeline, and then it had spin-offs and “alternate universes,” where the theme is mostly war and conflict between those that live in Earth and those that live in space colonies.

The conflicts are fought over with the use of robots called “mobile suits,” and the lead mobile suit is the Gundam. The iconic RX-78-2 Gundam and its rival the ZAKU II Char Custom, along with their pilots Amuro Ray and Char Aznable, are famous with almost any Gundam fan.

The Gundam franchise is celebrating their 40th anniversary and they have collaborated with numerous companies including Oppo, which is releasing their latest flagship phone, the Reno Ace, with a special Gundam Edition.

The head is a 1/7 scale and has compartments that can fit up to six frames: Two on each side of the    head, one at the back, and one behind the “eyes” of the Gundam. The eyes also light up and startup sounds will play once the front compartment is closed.
