Toy/figure company MegaHouse has announced the release date for the new Gundam Guys Generation Paptimus Scirocco during their “Mega Hobby +Plus 2022 April” online event.
The figure was initially announced in February during their “Mega Hobby +Plus 2022 Winter” event. The 230mm figure is full of self-confidence with a cool look and a fearless smile. The texture of the white fabric is reproduced by coloring.
Paptimus Scirocco is one of the main antagonists depicted in the 1985 Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam series, directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino. Known as “The Man from Jupiter” hailing from the Earth Federation’s Jupiter Fleet, Scirocco quickly rises through the ranks of the Earth Federation’s elite autonomous counter-insurgency group “Titans”. He’s charismatic with the particular ability to charm or manipulate women to join his side. Scirocco piloted the PMX-000 Messala, then the PMX-003 The-O.
The GGG series Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam Paptimus Scirocco is priced at 18,480 yen with a late October 2022 release date.
Airing from 1985 to 1986, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam is set in UC 0087 taking place eight years after the original Mobile Suit Gundam. The series shifts focus to Kamille Bidan, a civilian with a deep hatred for the Titans, the tyrannical autonomous counter-insurgency force of the Earth Federation. Drama ensues as Kamille joins the Anti-Earth Union Group(AEUG), the resistance organization combatting the Titans.
