Gundam Statue's Final Days Shown in Time-Lapse Video
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
It's certainly the end of one specific fan chapter of the life-size Gundam statue. Videographer Darwinfish105 has taken time-lapsed videos of the statue since it rose in Shizuoka in 2010, and continued with its disassembly to transport it to Odaiba, itsdecorations for Christmas, and shot it in High-Dynamic Range. In short, he's filmed the statue in its various forms for almost a decade.
But the life-size Gundam statue came down this month. Ever faithful, Darwinfish105 was there to capture its final days.
The "Gundam Front Tokyo" attraction will close on April 5. The Gundam Base Tokyo complex will take its place this summer. The complex on the mall's seventh floor will be Japan's largest one devoted to Gundam plastic models (Gunpla), as well as a "base" for disseminating news and information to Gundam fans. The RX-78-2 statue won't return but will instead be replaced by the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam from the Mobile Suit Gundam UC anime.
At the end of the video, Darwinfish105 promises to continue his time lapse series with the new statue.
