“Gundam World 2018 in Yao”, where you can experience the world of Gundam, is currently a popular event being held at Ario Yao in Osaka. The event will be held until April 1st (Sun).
The “Gundam Head [Bombed Ver.]”, blown away by Zeong’s attack during the battle on A Baoa Qu, and the “Mass Production Type Zaku Head [Bombed Ver.]” with a suspiciously lit mono-eye from Mobile Suit Gundam have been recreated to appear life-sized at the event.
“00 Gundam” from Mobile Suit Gundam 00, which celebrated its 10th anniversary since its broadcast this year, “RX-78-2 Gundam” from Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN, and “Unicorn Gundam Statue [Destroy Mode]” from Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn are now on display at the event as 1/10 scale statues.
Event-limited Gunpla such as “HG Gundam Clear Color Ver.” and “HG Gundam Mk-II (A.E.U.G.) Clear Color Ver.” are also being sold at the event. Current popular items being sold include Gundam World-exclusive clear files and T-shirts as well as Gundam goods such as the “Haro Crunch Can”, made in the image of Haro, and “Cookies with Famous Lines (with 9 cookies)”.
Other features of the event include the “Life-Sized Unicorn Gundam Cockpit”, where you can actually sit inside and enjoy the feel of being a pilot, and “Haro’s Gundam Examination”, implemented for the first time in Japan. Definitely be sure to visit this lively event.
