Do you remember him? The 1/1 scale Gundam that attracted more than four million people in Tokyo last year? If this is the first time you see him, please read the post HERE.

Now he came back to public for “Shizuoka Hobby Fair” and exhibited in Shizuoka city, Shizuoka PrefectureW.

 

 

The following video is the opening ceremony which was held last weekend.

 

 

 

The Gundam is 18 meters tall and weighs 30 tons. It is the same Gundam that was exhibited in Tokyo last year, but there are two subtle differences.

One is that the Shizuoka version holds the beam saber while the Tokyo version kept it on its back. And the other difference is that the Shizuoka version got weathered to look as if it was after a battle.

 

This is a close up picture.

A local newspaper reported that there were 30,000 visitors on the first day! And to get closer to the Gundam, they had to wait three hours in a line… Some people waited for five hours!!!

At the site, there are gift shops and food venders. One of the most popular snack among the fans there is “1/144 Gundam cake.” There are different flavors; sweet beans paste, bacon mayonnaise, and sausage and curry.
