In July last year, ASUS announced its collaboration with Bandai, and the resulting Gundam-themed routers. And then in October, word of the brands releasing other PC components and peripherals came to light. Now, it looks like some of them may be making their way to Malaysia.
On the ASUS ROG Facebook page, the company says in a post that it is bringing Gundam-themed products to Malaysia. Part of the post is an image showing the original RX-78-2, Char’s Zaku II Custom, and the words “coming soon”.
The post itself is devoid of any other information. This includes details like what exactly is ASUS bringing to Malaysia, or when we can expect to see them. Naturally, there’s no price of any sort either.
That being said, based on the Gundam and the red Zaku II, it’s probably safe to say that it will be among the collaboration items we saw last year. As is the deal with collaborations, you can expect them to be priced slightly higher than their standard versions.
Beyond that, it’s just more waiting on our part. On the bright side, if you’re a hardcore fan of the original Gundam and its The Origin retelling, then this means you won’t have to import them, and can buy them via official channels instead.
