"Competition of NEW GUNDAM -RED or WHITE-" short to be screened on 16-meter dome in museum

The Gundam Front Tokyo store and museum on Tokyo's artificial island of Odaiba will screen a new Gundam video short titled "Competition of NEW GUNDAM -RED or WHITE-" in the museum's "Dome-G" zone starting on November 7. The "Dome-G" zone features a dome 16 meters (about 52 feet) in diameter that is used to project Gundam-related videos.

The story setting of the new video is November of U.C. 0087, during the timeframe of the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam television anime. The story begins with Anaheim Electronics bringing out two mobile suits — the red Delta Gundam Unit 2 and the gray and white Z Gundam Unit 3 — for a presentation. The Z Gundam Unit 3 in this production is the "White Zeta" piloted by Amuro Ray in Gundam Neo Experience 0087 - Green Divers and Gundam Evolve. A battle unfolds between the two mobile suits.  

Gundam Front Tokyo will also sell the Gundam featured in the short as Gunpla: HGUC 1/144 MSN-001-2 Delta Gundam Unit 2 Ver. GFT Limited Color and RG 1/144 MSZ-006-3 Zeta Gundam Unit 3 Initial Inspection Model Ver. GFT Limited Color (see images below). The Z Gundam Unit 3 model will retail for 3,400 yen (about US$28) and the Delta Gundam Unit 2 model will retail for 2,500 yen (US$20). The shop at Gundam Front Tokyo will also sell a set of two clear files to use as a visual.

Gundam Front Tokyo is located in the Diver City Tokyo Plaza. Outside of the plaza is where the 18-meter life-size Gundam statue also resides. Gundam Front Tokyo opened in April 2012.

The statue will launch its "winter projection mapping" illumination event on December 5 (see images below). The event will last until February 14.
