Good news Gundam fans in Singapore, because two massive scale models of the RX-78-2 Gundam and Char’s Zaku II will be coming to Singapore and will be displayed during the Gundam Docks at Singapore event this June.
This will be the first time a Gundam Docks event is happening in Singapore, and it will be happening at Takashimaya Department Store B2 and at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza from June 4 – 28, 2015. The exhibition will feature 1/3 scale models of the RX-78-2 Gundam and Char’s Zaku II, which will measure in at 6m. Thought it ain’t as big as the 18m 1/1 scale Gundam in Odaiba, these things are also pretty massive. And you know what the best part of it all is? It’s all free!
Takayoshi Oyama, andai Namco Singapore’s Hobby Products Dept Manager, has said that this event will be “the biggest Gundam exhibition and showcase outside Japan”, and it will not only showcase the 1/3 scale mobile suits, but also several Zaku models, limited-edition GunPla, GunPla Expo merchandise, and many more.
Last 2013, a similar event happened in Hong Kong, which also featured the 1/3 RX-78-2 Gundam and the 1/3 Char’s Zaku II.
Gundam Docks at Singapore is a celebration of the 35th anniversary of Gundam and also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the founding of Singapore, which means that the event is all the more special.
