Hello again Gundam fans, today we have fantastic news for you. It was recently announced that at the Gundam Docks at Singapore event will have a super special merchandise, and super exclusive too!
Designed by renowned mecha designer Kunio Okawara to celebrate Singapore’s 50th year of Independence, this is the RX-78-2 Gundam SG50 Version! Take a look at the design!
It looks fantastic doesn’t it?! Sporting our local Singapore colors of Red and White with a Merlion and “Singapore” on the shield even! There’s quite a number of stickers judging from the model, but I really like the design overall! In fact, Singapore is the only country to have their own exclusive color Gundam in the world! Isn’t that something? Also Here’s the boxart and the full version courtesy of Okawara san’s Facebook page!
Okawara san himself has a few words about this new Gundam:
“It is such an honor to be able to design this special Gundam in celebration of Singapore’s 50th anniversary. This design is inspired by the red and white colours of Singapore’s national flag and my impressions towards the beauty and cleanliness of the country. I hope everyone likes this and it would be my great pleasure”
Also, fans who purchase this RX-78-2 Gundam SG50 Version can stand a chance to meet Kunio Okawara and get his signature in person on June 6th! Pricing will be made known soon so keep your eyes out for them! I’ll be getting quite a few of this as soon as I’m back in SG!
Gundam Docks in Singapore will be Asia’s largest Gundam exhibition taking place from 4th June to 28th June 2015 at Takashimaya Department Store basement 2! For more information, check the website here.
