For those who missed this:
To celebrate the original Mobile Suit Gundam 30th anniversary, a full scale 18 meter tall, 35 ton RX-78-2 robot was built in Odaiba, Tokyo and was officially unveiled last July 11th in Shiokaze Park.
This massive installation was in part of Japan’s “Green Tokyo Gundam Project“ to promote the revitalization of parks to produce a greener, more eco-friendly city for Tokyo’s next generation and future.
Mobile Suit Gundam was created and directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino, spanning 43 episodes between 1979-1980. The series has since gone on to becoming an iconic symbol of Japanese anime worldwide.
