Bandai will be releasing a series of 3D molded silicone iPhone 5 and 5S cases based on iconic symbols and mobile suits from Gundam.
The silicone cases, available in 4 varieties, feature raised 3D molds of some of Gundam’s most famous mobile suits and imagery, and are compatible with both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.
The Char’s Custom Zaku model is made using the same iconic shade of red that appears on Char Aznable’s customized Zaku II mobile suit, while the Zaku Mass Production Type model is made with green silicone and uses a black and white accent for the mobile suit’s trademark “mono eye”. Also available are cases based on the Gundam shield and the logo of the Principality of Zeon.
Each case retails for 2,625 yen, including tax. The cases will be available through KIWAMONOWEB, a division of Bandai’s official online shop, Premium Bandai, that sells officially licensed merchandise and smartphone cases. Quantities are limited, and orders will close when supplies are exhausted. The cases are scheduled to be released in February 2014.
