Earlier this month, Sagamiya, a company that makes tofu and other soya products, has released Z'Gok Tofu (bean curd) based on the mobile suit of the same name from Mobile Suit Gundam as part of its ongoing collaboration campaign!
A promotion video was made specifically for the Z'Gok Tofu, even featuring them invading Earth!
Earlier this year, we had the green Zaku Tofu in edamame bean flavour
Now, the Z'Gok Tofu joins in the invasion!

The actual tofu. Without the eye and the details, it looks relatively plain. Those with a bit of creativity and passion can decorate it to make it more like a Z'Gok.
The tofu package even comes with a Z'Gok claw fork! I seriously have my eyes on this!
Example dishes. As the Z'Gok is amphibious, it is recommended that it is placed in hot pot~
On the other hand, while the original Zaku Tofu is now discontinued, a new version with vanilla flavour is also available together with the Z'Gok Tofu, called Zaku Type D (based on the Zaku Desert Type). As the name hints, it is recommended for the Zaku Type D to go with desserts.
The actual tofu without the packaging. The shape is the same as the original Zaku Tofu but in cream instead of the pale green.
Perhaps a bit of decoration will liven it better?
Production of the Z'Gok tofu is over, so it's only a matter of time before they're sold out completely. It's a pity that the production run is quite short, and like many other food it is only available in Japan. I seriously won't mind having some of them, especially for the forks, and perhaps keeping the packaging for display or even moulding your own food like jelly!
