Gundam Front Tokyo 2013
I visited Gundam Front Tokyo in Odaiba last year, and it was a great time out there. This year I visited it again with my old schoolmates, and while a lot of things are expected to remain the same, some exhibited items have been changed.
1/1 Gundam in red lighting. Looks very much like Char's Gundam now~
There is a special video projected on one side of the mall behind the Gundam promoting its appearance, as well as showing Acguy in Gundam colours, which one can buy its model (together with other Gundam Front Tokyo limited models) in the souvenir shop.
