Gundam Christmas Tree

A Christmas tree it is, but look closer... ^^

... closer ...

... and closer ...

It's decorated with Gunplas. ^^

You can see HGUC Kshatriya, MG Wing Gundam Ver. Ka, Gundam Spielgel, and Qubeley Mk. II in the last picture.

This 5-m Gundam Tree is set up in Akihabara UDX to commemorate the release of "Gundam vs Gundam Next Plus", but it will stay there until Christmas. As you can see, the colors of the tree and its deco are mainly blue, red and yellow - the colors of Gundam of course. ^^

Over 60 Gunplas decorate the entire tree. ^^

The lighting ceremony of this Gundam Tree was done by Toru Furuya, the seiyuu for Amuro Ray from the original anime at 8PM yesterday. Despite bad weather, many turned up for the little event.

The tree will be lit from 4 to 11PM everyday at the venue mentioned. Fans currently in Japan don't miss it. ^^
