This latest giant Gundam has gone up near Yokohama’s Chinatown in the Yamashita Futo harbor in a special area that will be called The Gundam Factory. Previously, we checked in on the statue in early June. It was coming along great.

Shinto priests blessed the giant Gundam’s head, which was recently docked on the 59-foot statue.

According to Spice, engineers will now fine-tune the giant Gundam’s motion.

As Kotaku reported before, what makes this particular giant Gundam interesting is the degree to which it moves. There were tests, it seems, to check the statue’s mobility, which resulted in this excellent image.

(Update August 7, 2020 – 6:40 AM: The retweeted image, now removed by the original user, had been Photoshopped.)

Gundam Factory Yokohama was originally scheduled to open this October, but this has been postponed due to the global pandemic out of safety concerns for staff and visitors.
