Full-scale moving Gundam statue mobilizes October 2020!!

Yup, you read that right! The Gundam Factory Yokohama is getting ready to roll out another full size Gundam model…and this one is going to move! The statue will be unveiled at Yamashita Pier in Yokohama City on October 1, 2020 and will be on display until October 3, 2021. The moving statue was originally launched as “Gundam Global Challenge, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the franchise. It was scheduled to be revealed in Summer 2020 to coincide with the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020. The statue is made of steel and carbon resin.

In addition to the moving statue, Gundam Factory Yokohama will have a full-scale hanger for it, a “Gundam Lab” where visitors can learn how it works and a special viewing deck “Gundam Dock Tower.” Tickets go on sale in July.
