Construction work on a ”life-size” statue of the Gundam fictitious giant combat robot was opened to the press in Shizuoka City on Wednesday ahead of a public showing following last year’s similar event in a Tokyo seaside area.
This time the 18-meter-tall robot will stand near JR Higashishizuoka Station holding a Beam Saber, a signature weapon of Gundam in a popular sci-fi animation series, according to toy company Bandai Co. which leads the project.
Bandai started the project to mark the 30th anniversary of the release of its plastic model series featuring Gundam and other combat robots and picked the city, southwest of Tokyo, as the site for the exhibition starting July 24 as it has a key factory for components of the models dubbed ”Gunpla.”
