Several life-sized Gundam statues have gone up in Japan over the past few years. They could either move very little or not at all but that’s going to change with the latest one that’s being built now. A fourth anniversary Gundam project has been announced during a recent press conference. A “moving” 18-meter Gundam statue will be put up at the Gundam Factory Yokohama in the summer of 2020.
The image posted above is what was revealed at the press conference. Details are slim about how it will actually be able to move. Will the one-to-one scale Gundam be able to actually walk or will it just be able to lift a leg up?
It obviously won’t be completely mobile so there’s no hope of seeing that statue being able to move all around the place and destroy anything that comes in its path. It may be more visually appealing than the current life-sized Gundam which is a Unicorn RX-0 that was put up in 2017. Some parts in its helmet do move and there are some light up effects as well but that’s about it.
Gundam fans will be very interested to see what this new project delivers. They will have to wait for a couple of years to find that out.
