When i first saw posts about this real life scale Gundam, i was like…”woooow!”, Japanese sure is serious with their culture even if it’s a modern pop culture. As we know, Gundam is one of the well known and the most famous modern pop culture in Japan and maybe in the world, everyone knows about it. Gundam represent great future and advanced people.
This 1/1 scale Gundam were build to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of Gunpla and Gundam anime.
There is a light works and some steam works in this statue, the eye,booster,beam saber,shoulder parts have a light works, and the chest or any other vent will produce steam to look like a hot steam from the engine.
The head can move left and right and up, oh…and some sound effect from the original anime too.
The Real Grade RX-78-2 Gundam take panel line and color separation from this real scale gundam *or maybe the other way, i don’t remember which one is that.
This statue span about 18 meters and if the Gundam from the anime comes to life, this is the right scale of it
