Officially opened at the end of 2020, Gundam Factory Yokohama‘s life-size RX-78 unit has been the subject of talented photographers for weeks. The artists have captured the important marker of Japanese pop culture for fans all across the world that cannot currently check out the statue in Yokohama. The 59-foot, 55,500-pound moving mech attraction was awarded Guinness world records for being the world’s “Largest Mobile Humanoid Robot” and “Largest Mobile Gundam.”
Photographer Hiro Camera recently shared his vision of rendition of the first piloted robot that premiered with the original 1979 Mobile Suit Gundam show that gave way for the celebrated franchise. Hiro photoed and edited his images to make the life-size RX-78 look straight out of an anime. Tuning the colors and contrast, the scenes replicate iconic displays of the mech in a holding bay awaiting to head into another battle.
