You ever watch Mobile Suit Gundam and wish you could have one of your own? What if you could, but also be really comfortable at the same time? It's now possible thanks to Premium Bandai and their line of pillows based on the Mobile Suit Gundam series.

Premium Bandai announced a line of cute Mobile Suit Gundam plushies based on the fleet ships that are big enough to even take a nap on if you wished to.

The first of which is based on the SCV-70 White Base that appeared in over 40 episodes of the original Mobile Suit Gundam series. Often referred to as the "Trojan Horse" for its equine shape, the cushion recreation measures at 60cm long and 40cm high, and has a nice platform where you can rest your head.

The other plush pillow in this collection is Char's Masai cruiser and this pillow is 60cm long, but 52cm high. It's slightly bigger than the White Base pillow, so it looks just a bit more comfortable than the other.

Each pillow runs for 6,480 yen, and Premium Bandai is currently taking pre-orders on their site for the two pillows until they're completely out of stock. The orders are expected to ship out in March, so interested fans should jump on this soon if they're able.

One Mobile Suit Gundam fan even calculated what kind of power the mechas would yield in real life. Taking one of the most oft-ignored mechs in the series, that fans wouldn't consider too powerful, they calculated an incredible range that would surely do damage in the real world.

Not familiar with Gundam? You may want to give its latest anime a spin. Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, the series is set more than 300 years after the Calamity War first seen in the original Mobile Suit Gundam anime. With the Earth Sphere falling into anarchy, the world has given way to bandits and rebels. Iron-Blooded Orphans focuses on a young boy named Mikazuki Augus as he works for a security company, and his is used as cannon fodder during an ambush. Augus, along with his friend Orga Itsuka, take the chance to revolt against their demeaning employers - and the determined boy changes his fate when he begins piloting an abandoned mobile suit known as Gundam Barbatos.
