A life-size moving statue of the Mobile Suit ‘v Gundam’ (pronounced Nu Gundam), from the Char’s Counterattack film of the popular anime Gundam series, is now at Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport FUKUOKA.
v Gundam is a humanoid mobile weapon (a.ka. mobile suit) built for the main character Amuro Ray, the protagonist of the Mobile Suit Gundam anime that popularised the series, to battle his rival Char Aznable. It appeared in the film Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack, released in Japan in 1988.
It is a machine exclusively for the Newtype Amuro Rei, equipped with special abilities perfected while living in space, having the fictional control system Psycommu. This system allows him to transmit his own will directly to the machine to reflect them in its movements and receive his opponents’ will more easily.
The 24.8m life-size v Gundam statue now appearing at LaLaport FUKUOKA can move its right arm up/down and its face. It even incorporates 62 lighting effects to recreate the impressive scene in Char’s Counterattack when it pushes back the Axis asteroid rushing towards Earth.
You can see it in action LIVE on this Japanese news programme.
