As often reported, Japan has released so many collaboration products with Char Aznable, the most popular antagonist of the Mobile Suit Gundam anime franchise which will celebrate its 35th anniversary next year. Bandai's official online store Bandai Premium has started accepting pre-orders for "Char Zaku Cake Set" modeled after the head of MS-06S Char Custom Zaku, the mobile suit Char used to sortie against Amuro Ray's RX-78 Gundam in the first TV anime series in 1979.
The strawberry sponge cake filled with chocolate mousse is produced by Yellow Pumpkin, a famous Western confectionery store in Nagoya. The set contains a 16cm plate and fork with Char's emblem. The price for the Char cake set is 4,800 yen (about US$48.9) and it will be shipped in the middle of December.
