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.
