There are so many recent collaborations with popular culture and soda companies this past month. I really need to start posting more about them. One of the most recent is the Gundam Front Tokyo and Pepsi Nex collaboration. The two have teamed up to produce a set of collectible Gundam cans (only those serious collectors of all stuff Gundam of course). There 8 collectible cans in total I have listed them below. Funny thing is I had my frist Pepsi the other day (in very long time) with a slice of pizza and I have to admit, it just wasn’t the same experience as the Coke Cola and pizza combination. Other then that there really isn’t a whole lot to say about these cans other than I wish Pepsi USA would do a similar promotion already. Maybe I would by more Pepsi! Which do you prefer Coke or Pepsi?
