Gundam Docks at Hong Kong
At last, I finally managed to post the pictures of the Gundam Docks at Hong Kong event that happened back in August. My camera was misplaced soon after the evnet, and couldn't find it until recently orz. But later is better than never, and so the pictures get to see the light of the day!
The 1/3 scale (6m tall) RX-78-2 Gundam standing outside Times Square in Causeway Bay
Foot details of the Gundam. Individual markings can be seen there.
Standing opposite of the Gundam was Char's MS-06S Custom Zaku II, which was in the same height and scale as the Gundam.
At nights there is a brief light show with the Gundam and the Zaku, followed by a video introducing the Gundam franchise on the big screen behind the Gundam.
1/10 scale (1.8m) Real Grade Zaku models on display on the ground floor or people to take pictures with.
1/10 scale Real Grade Char's Zaku and 2 more mass production Zakus on display on the first floor
Product display and shop on the first floor. The area isn't very big as can be seen in the photo, but it's a nice display area for people to get to know more on the Gundams and the toys available.

That wraps up the long backlogged event! Wish I could bring this up earlier orz.
While the Gundam and Zaku were not of life size, it's still impressive to see the 6m replicas standing in one of the busiest areas in Hong Kong. It's also amazing how the venerable director of Gundam Yoshiyuki Tomino was invited to Hong Kong for an interview! The human size Zaku statues are a nice addition for people to take photos with, though there are reports of damage from people who mistreated them. :\
Nevertheless I am glad that Hong Kong managed to host such an event, which shows just how popular the franchise is over ehre. I do hope to see more of such events in the future!
