Custom "Chinese Gundam" Gunpla
Moeyo has spotted a fan-made custom Gunpla of the "Chinese Gundam" in Treasure Festa event 5. More images of this bizzare yellow "Gundam" after the jump.
"Chinese Gundam" (actual name further down the post, but this is the name that most people recognise it as) in 3 slightly different angles. Judging from the details this should be in 1/144 scale.
Torso, with a big radiation hazard warning symbol on the chest.
... And the "original" here in Chengdu Floral Land amusement park. This "Chinese Gundam" is known as 天鄉二號 (Tian Xiang Er Hao, or Tian Xiang Number 2, although some sources quote it as 天香二號). It originally had an appearance that resembles much closer to the original RX-78-2 Gundam before it was sued by Sotsu. The "Chinese Gundam" is then altered to what we see now, and funny enough there are a good amount of fanart slowly being generated, not just by the Chinese community, but also by the Japanese community too.

Man, this fanart makes the "Chinese Gundam" look quite... Badass ^^;
