While travelling is not recommended right now due to the COVID-19 outbreak, if you’re looking to travel in geeky style once the outbreak ends, these new suitcases might just be for you!
STRICT-G and PROTEX (a renowned Japanese luggage brand) recently unveiled a new line of suitcases that are inspired by Mobile Suit Gundam. The Gundam luggage collection features four suitcases, with each featuring water and corrosion resistance, as well as a rigid build thanks to high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material.
Of the four suitcases, two are based on the PROTEX CR-3300 model which are designed as carry-on bags. Each of the two carry-on suitcases feature designs based on Zeon Army Zaku and Char Aznable’s Zaku II respectively.
The other two suitcases are based on the PROTEX CR-4000 check-in luggage model. While much larger and bulkier than the former suitcases, the CR-4000 gundam cases also come in two designs, also based on the Green Zaku II and Char Aznable’s Zaku II.
The carry-on suitcases are priced at JPY 118,800 (USD 1,137 or PHP 57,392) each while the check-in cases have SRPS of JPY 140,800 (USD 1,348 or PHP 68,005) each. The suitcases are available now in Japan at the Premium Bandai online store. There’s no word on if these cases will be released internationally.
