Gundam Front Tokyo


If you are thinking of what to do next after the magnificent sight of 1/1 scale Gundam RX-78-2 @ Gundam @ Diver City (Odaiba), you ought to pay a visit to Gundam Front Tokyo by taking the escalator to the top most level inside Diver City. Don't worried about getting the tickets cos the staff will be around at the entrance to help you.

Next, we will be taking the walk-way leading to Dome-G where you get to watch Gundam on a domed screen with state-of-the-art technology to create spectacular viewing experience. A dome 16 meters (50 feet) in diameter, equipped with six projectors and 13 speakers. Guests see footage of the 1/1 Gundam taken from a crane, famous scenes from past Gundam series, and impressive, highly-detailed CG of mobile suits like the RX-93 ν Gundam.

It's everything about Gundam @ Gundam Front Tokyo! Even the signages from out-of-bound area,  toilets and exit signs are Gundam related. So after the cinematic experience, you will find yourself at a dimly lighted area welcomed by surprises like an RG 1/1 scale bust of the Strike Freedom Gundam and 1/1 Core Fighter from Mobile Suit Gundam's moving finale, revised and refreshed under control lightings. Do have some fun trying out the Real Photo spot by sitting inside Unicorn Gundam cockpit and have you pics taken like Agent 'S' and I did.

Another excellent area for photo-taking would be the Character Photo Spot where you can take snapshot of yourself alongside life-sized characters from your favourite Gundam  series. It was my first time seeing Gundam RX-78-2 projection mapping before it was exhibited during Singapore Gunpla Expo 2013.

Talk about a massive diorama, there's also a projector tower displays the space fortress A Baoa Qu, scene of Gundam OYW final battle, on the inner wall of the Experience Field. The display is 4.5 meters high by 3 meters wide. Apart from all that I had mentioned, there were other Gundam artifacts might interested you along the way. I'm not done with Gundam Front Tokyo so do tune-in for part 2...

Good option to consider a DSLR. Mine is for beginner but works well for me. No need to be expensive. Thx for sharing link. Perhaps we could also exchange link ^_^
