Loot Crate recently launched our Gundam Capsule Collection that holds a special place in our hearts for a very special reason that I’m going to talk about today. I’ll also be giving you some info on each of the featured Mobile Suits! First thing’s first though…
What is a Capsule Collection?
A Capsule Collection is an opportunity to pick up some cool themed apparel as a one of purchase rather than a recurring subscription! Our Gundam Capsule Collection features 3 tee shirts, a long sleeve tee, and a henley all featuring different Mobile Suits from 5 separate Gundam franchises!
Why is this Capsule Collection special in particular?
We polled the fans! We let the fans pick their favorite suit from each individual franchise through our @GundamLifeCrate IG stories! This collection is truly for the fans by the fans!
Which suits are featured?
GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam (Mobile Suit Gundam SEED)
The GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam is featured in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and is developed from the standard GAT-X105 Strike Gundam equipped with the AQM/E-X01 Aile Striker pack. This pack contains thrusters that enhance the speed and maneuverability from the base model.
In the series, this Gundam was primarily piloted by Kira Yamato before it was handed down to Mu La Flaga.
The featured Mobile Suit Gundam SEED item in our Capsule Collection is a short sleeve black tee-shirt featuring The GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam!
ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex (Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS)
The AWS-G-08 Gundam Barbatos Lupus is the main Mobile Suit in the first part of season 2 of Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS. It’s developed from the AWS-G-08 Gundam Barbatos and piloted by Mikazuki Augus.
The base model Barbatos was badly damaged through many battles, so it was sent to the MS Workshop to be overhauled. It was reconfigured to be more of a close combat unit and be more in tune with Mikazuki’s senses.
The featured Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS item in our Capsule Collection is an olive green short sleeve tee featuring the ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex!
MS-06S Char’s Zaku II (Mobile Suit Gundam)
Char’s MS-06S Zaku II is a customized version of the MS-06S Zaku II Commander Type used in Mobile Suite Gundam. It’s also painted in Char’s personal red color and adorned with a horn-like decoration to signify it being a commander unit.
Char earned his nickname “Red Comet” from the using a hit and run tactic aided by the removal of the limiters on its thrusters.
The featured Mobile Suit Gundam item in our Capsule Collection is a red short sleeve tee shirt featuring the MS-06S Char’s Zaku II!
GN-0000+GNR-010 00 Raiser aka 00 Raiser (Mobile Suit Gundam 00)
The 00 Raiser is the combined form of GN-0000 00 Gundam and GNR-010 0 Raiser. This unit is a highly experimental Gundam that suffers from power instability issues. The Raiser System allows the 00 Raiser to utilize powerful attacks such as the Raiser Sword making it extremely effective in close quarter combat.
00 Raiser has been dubbed a mobile suit that exceeds the performance of all others surpassing the very concept of “Gundam”.
The featured Mobile Suit Gundam 00 item in our Capsule Collection is a light blue long sleeve tee featuring 00 Raiser on the front and accompanied on the back by the GNR-010 0 Raiser. It also features the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Second Season logo printed on one sleeve!
XXXG-01W Wing Gundam (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing)
The XXXG-01W Wing Gundam is the titular Gundam from the series Mobile Suit Gundam Wing and is primarily piloted by Heero Yuy. It bears the closest resemblance to its ancestor the XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero of the five Gundams developed for Operation Meteor. It, like its ancestor, has the ability to transform into “Bird Mode”.
When XXXG-01W Wing Gundam was manufactured it left out the ZERO System as it was deemed excessive. This requires a very adept pilot to make up for the shortfall created by removing the system.
The featured Mobile Suit Gundam Wing item in our capsule collection is a white long sleeve henley. It features the head of the XXXG-01W Wing Gundam on the breast pocket area on the front. The back features the rearview of the Wing Gundam with script! The sleeve features the logo for Mobile Suit Gundam Wing as well!
