We've seen the head portions of famous Mobile Suit designs from iconic anime "Mobile Suit Gundam" surprisingly translated to the culinary world, with Gundam-shaped tofu (complete with gold powder filled curry sauce used to paint the tofu like a Gundam model) and even Zaku head cast iron tea kettles.
So why not go back to the Gundam head well for a winter celebration? That's exactly what Premium Bandai has decided to do, this time by releasing a traditional Japanese donabe hot pot modeled after Char Aznable's MSM-07S Z'Gok Commander Type.
Donabe are Japanese earthenware and clay pots that are used to prepare popular winter hot pot, soup, and stew dishes. The MSM-07S Z'Gok Commander Type piloted by the Red Comet Char Aznable happens to be just the right shape for such a pot, making this a winter hot pot perfect for Gundam fans. The duct-designs found on the original helmet of the Z'Gok also double as air holes for the hot pot.
The MSM-07S Z'Gok Commander Type hot pot can be ordered from Premium Bandai's online store for 7,480 yen.
