Life-Size v Gundam Statue Gets Colorful Merch Line


Last year, Fukuoka unveiled its own life-size robot statue: the RX-93ff v Gundam, as seen in Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack. Standing tall in the Mitsui Shopping Center LaLaport, the massive mech marks the future site of a new Gundam Park. For now, though, you can enjoy light and effects shows surrounding the robot itself.


Alternatively, if you can’t get out to Fukuoka, you can pick up some celebratory merch!


The new goods all feature a bright, multicolored logo, along with the bot’s name and stats. Wear your fandom with tees, hoodies and pins:
