20th Gundam Anniversary Chogokin Zaku II











Zaku warriors form the battalion of the Principality of Zeon fighting force. This mono-eyed mobile suit primary weapons consist of machine gun, bazooka and the super-cool heat axe. It can also inflict damages on other MS by charging and use it's spikes on the shoulder.

Basic Zaku is in a military style green colour and built to appear brawl and stout. The toy is a chogokin made in 1999 by Bandai and it comes with all accessories and a Dopp Fighter. Zakus of the world rise your hands into the air! We are warriors, WARRIORS of the world!

This set of Gundam is really great. I just love the mini vehicles they come with as they look almost scaled with the Zaku.

Hmm...I actually remember seeing this set a very long time ago at a local toy store, but of course it was way too expensive for me to afford. Zaku's are one of my favorite suits in Gundam, following only the Gouf!

I also think it's the Dopp Fighter is rather exclusive and adds value to the whole set.

This set is vintage by now. It's ard 60 buck the last time. Now that I'm into Gunpla, I would like having a HGUC will be much a affordable and more ani-correct.

Not bad... The Zaku II actually comes along with a Dopp fighter..

Just like how is like when Zeon fought their war on earth. There ain't many Zaku in chogokin so this is interesting.

The rusty heat hawk blade is a nice touch!

Can't remember did to come with the rusty look or it degenerated over year. But, it does look same cool in the pic. Hee! Hee!

By the way, have you considered getting the Robot Damashi Version...that one comes with tons of weapons!!

the green zaku always looks great, absolutely the classic one are awesome,,

I think I want to grab the RG green zaku because I didn't like the char's one

after many times seeing this mecha, finally i found an analogy with the german army, indeed the Zakus look like a german soldier & i do think that their creators had to keep that in mind... in this case, the Zaku diecast looks better than the Gundams themselves... is this item in ur collection yet pal ??? =)

This is the first time I see a toy Dopp Fighter. Didn't know they actually make the toys for that. Exclusive indeed!

I just bought the E.F.G.F version of Zaku II. Considering getting Shin's white Custom Zaku too! Tempting... Don't think will go for Robot Damashii due to it's pricing.

>> RiP666
The green Zaku is an icon and ya, RG is a excellent choice.

>> chrismandesign
I think so too! The uniform and mecha design of Zeon army share much similarity to the Germans. As for the chogokin itself, I also agreeded that the complexity of the Zaku toy of a great extent. One of the feature is the complex shoulder joints.

>> LEon
Dopp is so compatible with Zaku as they are both some rounded. They are an adorable pair. Lol...
