A “torn-apart” life-size Gundam model is currently on exhibition in Odaiba, Tokyo. The Gundam stood tall at previous exhibitions in the past two years, but the organiser decides to make things a bit different this time for the visitors to have a closer look at the design.

A 18-metre model, based on the ever popular Gundam anime franchise, was erected in Tokyo’s Odaiba last year and created raves around the world. The Gundam was however taken down after two months as it was not built to last.
The Shizuoka Gundam is scheduled to open on July 24. It can move a bit as per the previous one; not sure how long this new Gundam is going to stay though.
A life-sized 18m Gundam model was assembled at Odaiba Island in Tokyo to mark the 30th anniversary of “Mobile Suit Gundam”, the very first Gundam anime series which evolved into a highly successful franchise over the years…
The real scale Gundam can do a few simple tricks, no big deal… but the details of the model itself is still pretty impressive.
The Gundam is going to be displayed for only two months unfortunately, it could turn to be Tokyo’s new tourist attraction if it’s kept for a much longer period.
