China has unveiled their 1:1 life-size Freedom Gundam today in Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport in Shanghai’s Pudong New Area.
The 18m mecha was officially completed today and considered second in the world with, Japan’s recent articulated RX-78-2 debut in Yokohama last year.
The statue comprises 288 parts and took a total of nine months to construct and build altogether.
For now, we’re still unsure if the Freedom Gundam is capable of any animation or lighting effects so we can only wait for its official grand opening set on 28 May 2021.
This life-size Gundam is the first of its kind to be displayed outside Japan.
