When one go on a walking session over at Japan, one need to head over to Odaiba for a few reason despite the expensive train ticket in order to enter there.
Ya.. it cause around 500 yen and above, but hey, I had to go there twice for a few reason myself; Tokyo Big Sight for Comiket and Diver City for Tokyo Gundam Front.
One of the entrance is though the famous Rainbow Bridge, and the monorail was pretty nice to sit on.
I mean; ‘Come On!’ Singapore trains transport sit are hard plastic but Japan’s is soft cushion seats?!
Not only did I enjoy the scenery during the ride, while standing up to take a few nice photos on train like a frantic tourist should.
But it been so long since the last time I was here on 2008 August.
This time I going on a free time, so I can get to enjoy walking around, taking a few nice photos, plus watching the nice show at Diver City; The big Gundam Winter show… I will show them at the near end of this post.
Ya.. many who know this building will know where I am…
While the front is the famous Aqua City, the back is the Diver City; both shopping center are pretty near to each other, and easily reached by foot.
But as a frantic tourists, since the Gundam show is at around 5 – 6pm, of course I need to take a few nice photo shots of the place.
She is in bad mood today… (Her face is very … dark…)
I will show much of the Aqua City at a later posts, but the important is about Gundam, right?
I did promised previously about them.
At level 7 of Diver City, there is a Tokyo Gundam Front which is very hard to miss.
Well… firstly there is a gigantic picture of a Gundam, and it pretty easy to get to there.
There are just to many pretty, cute, cool, expensive, cheap… blah blah blah and etc… Gundam on display from the entrance all the way to it interior.
Well, I’m not gonna going to talk much or even comment too much about those photo.. I mean .. there about a hundred plus photos here.
So just take the peek into them while scrolling down, just hope your computer not lagging on the loading of the photos. (=w= ||)
(So many different Gundam on display.. I wish this was my room…)
(Ok.. too many varieties….)
(Photos is very very ok here, so many people can snap a few nice photos of them as a whole or individual as they like..)
(Wait… are they shiny or real gold?!?)
If you really like those nice Gundam, you may find them at their stores at the back, but do take note… the display is a “sample” and not for sale; so when you build your own Gunpla, it might not look the same as the “sample”
There are a few exclusive Gunpla which you may only grab them here.
So it a good time to grab a few of your favorite here, plus a few of the Gunpla are actually cheaper than the one I find mostly in Singapore.
Problem would be how to bring them back to Singapore due to the box size though… (=x= |||)
(A difference of Gundam Scale and Grade)
(I don’t care if it’s a SKE 48 version or what, but it look so pretty in my Sparkly Eyes…)
(They sure got a lot of different Gundam that are “Coming Soon” to the shelf..)
(There is also a display of Gunpla done by different country Gunpla lovers.. I mean competitor.. Well.. I show 2 from Singapore.)
I really like most of the display set which not only did they did a good job on their Gunpla, but a great job on the environment for the Gunpla to display in.
Really give a good feel to the Gunpla.
A few Gunpla do not have their place.. but the detail on the Gunpla are not to be overlook, and their poses are pretty cool too.
By far this is my favorite one, in which showing one Gunpla building snowman with a child.
I wonder what will it be to be playing snowball with a Gundam / Mobile suit… the first thing I would like to see is the size of their snowball… (=x= |||)
(I like the underwater feel of this display..)
(It’s like time frozen for this display.. I wonder what will the destruction will be like when the time start..)
(Time really frozen here again…)
(Wow.. Just wow… it really seem this mobile suit was just recovered from the sea recently..)
(Destruction of building, ruins are a common sight in the Gundam world, but to build them for Gunpla.. is another thing..)
(I think someone just move the Gundam to it left… or that it really move on it …)
There are many nice clothes, bag and stuffs to grab with clean hands at the shops here over at Gundam Front.
Well the prices can be as high as a 8000 yen for one item, but there are cheaper alternative.
(I pretty tempt to buy this game to play myself..)
(Due to it limited Gunpla… but wasn’t able to get it..)
(Hey.. it a Gunpla Hanger!! Those Spare part on the hanger? Ya.. You can really build one Gunpla out of them…)
(The most cheapest alternative? .. .. Capsule!!!)
(Ya.. if only you going to get one only… but there are collectors too…)
There were more and more different Gunpla on display as you get near to the Gunpla shop.
Personally even I was to grab a lot of them myself.
(Sold Out… (TwT||) )
(You can leave your mark here…)
(But of course that sitting on that and mark that kind of mark..)
(My Sparkly Eyes can’t seem to switch off for unknown reason..)
(And they sell tasty yummy Gundam Snack here…)
(The master with his signature sunglass showing steps to build a Gunpla)
(So many different Gundam… Even I’m tempted to grab them… but most of them are sold out..)
As it near to sunset at around 4pm, of course it about time to head down to take a few nice photos of the big Gundam first before it turn dark.
Another reason was that I wanted to take a bite first at the ‘food court’ near that place.
(The real size scale Gundam is simply too gigantic..)
(There wasn’t even a big robot in sight back when I first visit in 2008..)
There is a Gundam Cafe and a small Gunpla shop behind the big Gundam, so you can still enjoy some tasty meal while looking out at the back of the Gundam.
Or get some Gunpla or stuffs to keep.
(It really seem ready to take down the bad guys who dare to threaten the safety of Tokyo..)
(Since I visited this place during winter season, how am I going to miss it night Winter Light Up show?)
(A moment of the nice scenery again that surround the big Gundam)
(By far one of my favorite photos taken during Japan Walking Session)
I find it really interesting that when the light on the Gundam turned off, Diver City also switch off most of the display light to make the Gundam Winter Light Up a nice show to watch and remember..
I had taken a few photos of them, and I did recorded them.. well.. here are the videos that you might want to watch instead of my talking..
But do forgive of the bad shaking.. It’s really was very cold and my clean hands were numb during the recording.
I recorded 2 different light up show, but I accidentally press the pause on the second show, so I got 2 different parts of the video.
(Ok.. It’s really seem to me that it ready to launch…)
Well, if you’re at Tokyo for some Walking session yourself, plus if you’re a fan of Gundam, best head over to Diver City at Odaiba.
Even if you don’t like them, the big Gundam is an attraction over there, so you can snap photos of yourself with the big robot to show off to your friends like what this post seem to be..
In any case, hope you enjoy the whole lot of photos I taken, and like and share this posts.
