The Bandai Namco Group aims to work together with fans to create a Gundam Metaverse where Gundam fans from all over the world can gather, discuss, and experience anime and GUNPLA, as well as enjoy UGC (User Generated Content) such as GUNPLA masterpieces and artwork created by fans.
During its limited duration, there will be a 3D area where visitors can immerse themselves in the world of Gundam, an EC shop where 6 types of event-limited GUNPLA can be purchased, and an area where digital live performances will take place featuring artists related to Gundam titles. The main content of the Gundam Metaverse will be the UGC Museum, where photos of GUNPLA created by users, CG scans of GUNPLA, and videos introducing GUNPLA customization tips.
In addition, the GUNPLA Scan feature created through a collaboration between the Bandai Namco Group and the Sony Group, and Mellow, an AI character that helps users communicate with each other, will also be implemented. There will also be entertaining content such as dioramas with digital effects unique to this world.
Be sure to pre-register and dive into the world of the Gundam Metaverse.

[GUDA] Over 190,000 people have participated in the Gundam R Operation in 2 years!

[GUDA] “Gundam Pavilion (name TBD) will be held at the Osaka/Kansai Expo!
On Tuesday, July 11th, the 2025 Japan World Expo Osaka Pavilion Promotion Committee and Bandai Namco Holdings agreed to further build up excitement for the Osaka/Kansai Expo and achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The first round in this initiative is GUNPLA Academia, where participants see about the latest technology and processes in plastic model kit making (planning, designing, molding, and production), while learning about sustainable manufacturing initiatives such as recycling plastic waste materials. This will be carried out at elementary schools in Osaka Prefecture from August. The program is being provided to approximately 140,000 fifth and sixth graders attending approximately 1,030 elementary schools (including national, public, private, and those run by ordinance-designated cities) in Osaka Prefecture, and a new system for collecting used runners has also been established. The overall total number of participants in GUNPLA Academia, which started in 2021, is expected to exceed 500,000.
To contribute to build up excitement for the Osaka-Kansai Expo, there are plans to create and exhibit art pieces using the gathered runners, and we are also planning on using them for the Osaka-Kansai Expo itself.
