Gundam Odaiba 2012

I have persuaded Gundam to come back to Tokyo, landing in Odaiba once more.

My friend from England used to have his facebook profile picture of this Gundam, it was back in 2009, and I was so jealous of those lucky fellows. As a matter of fact, God or Gundam always answer the prayers of those who are faithful. I have persuaded Gundam to come back to Tokyo, landing in Odaiba once more.

Historical and technical information about this RX-78-2 Gundam can be found on Gundam Wiki. If you want to go and meet Gundam in Odaiba as well, they have a English website to guide you.

The weather was as good as it could be, thus it was not so hard to make Gundam look handsome.
