Life-Sized Walking RX-78-2 Mobile Suit Gundam Is Slowly But Surely Taking Shape

Since it was first announced in January 2020, the team behind the Gundam Global Challenge has been hard at work creating a life-sized model of the iconic RX-78-2 Mobile Suit Gundam piloted by Amuro Ray. 

It’s been a while since we’ve had any updates on the projects but now photos of the RX-78-2-in-making have surfaced online and we have to say, it is more than a little unbelievable to actually see the life-sized Gundam slowly but surely taking shape. 

The team has also released a video chronicling what happens behind the scenes of the Gundam Global Challenge project.

[UPDATE] Evolving G, the company behind the Gundam Factory Yokohama project has just announced today that the preview event originally planned for July 2020 has been delayed due to COVID-19. The planned opening of the facility in October 2020 has also been postponed. The new opening date will be announced at a later date once it has been decided. [END UPDATE]
