Admiring the detail of the Gundam RG 1/1 RX-78-2 Ver. GFT statue in Odaiba


If you are passionate about Gundam, there is no doubt a goal that many have of going to Japan, going to Odaiba and seeing the Mobile Suit Gundam RG 1/1 RX-78-2 Ver. GFT in all its glory.

If you are into gunpla, seeing the 1:1 Mobile Suit Gundam RG 1/1 RX-78-2 Ver. GFT is just an awesome experience.

As a gunpla builder, while everyone wanted to take a selfie or a photo of the statue, I spent the hour shooting the details of the mech and almost shooting it like I do my own gunpla.  Here are some of the photos I took.

The Mobile Suit Gundam 35th Anniversary Cake

To be sold ala Premium Bandai for Y3,980 (including tax + shipping and handling), the cake has a look of a 1/144 scale Gundam.


The bottom layers feature chocolate sponge cake with coffee cream on the top.  Almonds are between the layers of sponge cake along with coffee syrup.


And the spoon and fork, offered for a limited time, is something that Gundam fans will enjoy!
