More images of the 1/1 Scale Gundam RX-78-2 built at Shiokaze Park in Tokyo for Gundam 30th Anniversary. The construction is completed about a month in advance before it's officially open for public viewing on July 11th.
It's reported that the number of visitors have increased greatly since June 10th, as the statue approached its completion. There were more than 1,000 visitors to the park last Saturday (June 13th), and on Sunday, visitors can be seen having picnics near the statue, and with no surprise, many were seen busy taking photos with their cell phones and camera.
Some even expressed their wish of seeing a statue of Zaku being built as well.
Images and report from Manichi.
On a related noted, Nippon Travel announces Gundam Project Official Tour, some sort of tour package I think, allowing participants to view the statue from a room, with other special benefits, including Gunpla as well.
To be available in mid June. More information will be released in the future.
