What is the “Gundam GLOBAL CHALLENGE” project?
An 18m full-scale Gundam statue that appeared in 2009. The appearance of trampling on the ground captured the hearts of many people and expressed the possibilities of dreams. And now, Gundam, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2019, will move Japan and the world.
“Challenge your dreams, move Gundam, move the world”

Challenge to move the ultimate dream, 18m full-scale Gundam! We have formed a project team to realize our grand dreams, solicited ideas and plans from all over the world, and promoted global projects centered on Japan. Incorporating various opinions, wisdom and technology through open innovation, we have integrated them into one plan. After repeating basic design, implementation design, and verification experiments, we finally started production. In 2020, dreams will come true The world-class manufacturing technology and the strong and passionate feelings of people across fields and generations will “move Gundam.” Gundam will bring you the best entertainment ever.
