The MSM-08 Zogok originates from Kunio Okawara’s first Mobile Suit Variations series, establishing dozens of alternate versions of preexisting Mobile Suits in the Universal Century Timeline. The MSM-08 Zogok is a heavily modified variant of the MSM-07 Z’Gok built specifically for close-quarters combat above the surface. The MSM-08 Zogok is still an amphibious Mobile Suit but can only propel itself underwater using its feet. Like its sister, the MSM-04G Juaggu, Zeon built the MSM-08 Zogok to Assault the Earth Federation’s Jaburo Base but never utilized it. The Mobile Suit would finally see action in 0096 in Neo Zeon’s assault of Torrington Base, as seen in the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn animated series.

Included with the HGUC MSM-08 Zogok for accessories:

  • Boomerang Cutter x10
  • Heat Sword
  • Deployed Heat Sword Effect Part
  • Arm Extension x2
  • Sturm Faust x2


Like many amphibious Mobile Suits, the MSM-08 Zogok features an integrated head and chest to reduce water resistance while traveling underwater. Underneath the transparent cover on the front of the Mobile Suit is a uniquely ball-jointed monoeye sensor, providing the MSM-08 Zogok’s eye with an excellent range of motion. The torso and waist of the MSM-08 Zogok are separate pieces attached via a ball joint for a small amount of articulation in all directions. The inclusion of heat piping connecting the backpack to the waist thrusters may inhibit some posability

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

Unlike the MSM-08 Zogok’s amphibious friends, the Mobile Suit’s standard fixed armaments include a pair of traditional manipulators, enabling the MSM-08 Zogok to use standard melee weapons and mass-production firearms. Builders will find two such weapons in the package alongside the MSM-08 Zogok, including a Heat Sword and a pair of Sturm Fausts. The MSM-08 Zogok’s manipulators are weapons all by themselves too! This Mobile Suit can extend its forearms at a high velocity, and when combined with the oversized and specially designed manipulators, will crush multiple layers of armor.

HGUC #161 MSM-08 Zogok Unicorn Version

Tips and Tricks –

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HGUC #161 MSM-08 Zogok Unicorn Version with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. If you’re up to a challenge making panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before the application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.

  1. Avery Atzbach (verified owner)

    One of the best HG kits you can buy. The only problem with this kit is that it makes me wish there were more contemporary MSV kits! Great color separation, comes with more accessories than it has any right to, and great articulation. Buy this kit immediately!

  2. zerofitz (verified owner)

    Couple of stickers for the white on the wrist and of course the eye, so pretty nice overall color separation. The extended fist gimmick isn’t collapsible back into the arm but is easily switched out for possibility. Overall a great HG and a great addition to anyones Zeon collection.

  3. Dr Zaius (verified owner)

    Buy this kit, you’ll love it.

  4. Athrun Zala (verified owner)

    Literally a perfect kit. The oversized hands are an absolute joy to build (along with the rest of the kit).

  5. Ursa Ursa (verified owner)

    A wonderful kit with an assortment of weaponry!
