The latest life size Gundam statue in Japan is almost complete

No matter how many times Gundam's new image goes up in Japan, it is. This week was not going to be any different when the RX-93FF V’s head crew attached to his body as a crowd of spectators and journalists came to watch the scene.

The one-on-one pastime is a riff on Amuro Ray's . It stands 81.3 feet high and is located in front of the LaLaport shopping center in Fukuoka, the most populous city on the southern Japanese island of Kyushu. Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino was involved in the design of the image, introducing the new three-tone color scheme that adorns it.

Not the first to go up in Japan. Perhaps the most familiar is the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam which stands in the Odaiba region of Tokyo. It was a frequent sight at the 2022 Summer Olympics and a source of much nerd faux pas during the event. Just ask the and this.

according to Am Mainichi, there is still a rub that workers must add before the Gundam is ready sometime before the end of February. Hopefully the pandemic will subside by then so that people outside Japan can visit it.
