Gundam fans will soon be seeing a dream come true. Last week footage leaked of the Gundam Factory Yokohama’s special project: an 18 meter tall moving Gundam robot. The video showed the giant robot moving about as it took a knee, walked forward, and pointed up towards the sky.
The project has been underway for several years and was initially going to be opened this October, but due to Corona, it has now been revealed to open on December 19th. Gundam Lab Yokohama will feature the life-size Gundam behemoth and a two-story Gundam Lab that will allow visitors to learn about the building of the giant robot and stock up on every kind of Gundam merchandise. There will also be unique merchandise only available at Gundam Factory Yokohama.
Furthermore, Softbank will feature a Gundam Pilot View 5G experience, which will put people right in the virtual cockpit of the 18 meter tall moving Gundam.
This unique sight will only be available for a limited time. The Gundam is currently planned to stay in Yokohama until March 31st of 2022. After that time, it could be moved or even closed down.
