Odaiba Gundam

Knowing that the Gundam would be opened on July 11th, I and my friends decided to go there to see the opening. I always wanted to take a night shot of it so we decided to go there around 6 PM.

Since that was the first day, I was expecting that a lot of fans would be there. It was more than what I expected though.

You could see all the gears aimed at the Gundam from all sides.

It was my second time to be there but I could still feel the awesomeness of it.

Staff
The Green Tokyo staffs were there to protect the Gundam from being hijacked.

Hundreds of people were lining up to get close to it.

Last time when I took the photos, there was still fences around it. But now, they already removed it which means you could get very very close to it and touch it !!

I was very excited when my turn finally came. I immediately rushed to it and hugged the foot.

Do not stop !
I could only touch it for a few minutes though before they started telling me to move....

Even though it was only for a few minutes but I was very happy that I could touched it.

Every half an hour, a smoke will come from it and the head will start moving. It will then make a sound as if the Gundam will take off. Awesome !

If you plan to go there, I recommend going there from around 4 PM so you could see the Gundam during day and night.

You could see more photos of Gundam during the day from here.

Excellent photos, honestly probably the best ones I've seen so far of it...

Especially the photos with the people next to it, really puts just how huge this beast is into perspective. Can't wait to finally see it in person!
