Gundam’s Haro Comes to Earth… as a Vacuum Cleaner

Gundam’s Haro Comes to Earth… as a Vacuum Cleaner
Haro was made more than a few appearances on Gundam’s anime episodes and video games, but now it has landed on earth – as a vacuum cleaner. So that’s probably not the most extravagant of appliances that it can be manifested in, but it’s better than nothing, right?

Gundam-Themed Hotel Rooms Meet Every Gundam Fans’ Needs
Hey, Gundam fan. Yes, you – I’m talking to you. It seems like you’re not alone in your desire to own and have everything that screams Gundam, because the folks over at Tokyo’s Pacific Le Daiba probably knew that there were more fans like you in the world.

Gundam Learns How to Walk

Gundam Learns How to Walk
I always thought the Gundam already knew how to walk, but apparently the giant mech never really knew how to do it properly. So leave it to some enterprising Japanese geek to come up with a way to get Gundam to learn how to walk using a CGI physics engine.

13-Foot-Tall Robot is Stepping Stone to Life-Size Walking Gundam

13-Foot-Tall Robot is Stepping Stone to Life-Size Walking Gundam
Robots are cool and rather fascinating not because they tend to do anything particularly mind-blowing yet, but because they hint at a future where we have robots that will do cool and really useful stuff for us on a daily basis.

7 Foot Papercraft Gundam FTW!

7 Foot Papercraft Gundam FTW!
The title pretty much says it all. This incredible 7 foot-tall papercraft Gundam is about the greatest thing I’ve seen all day week month year.

Giant Gundam in Pieces, World Comes to an End

Giant Gundam in Pieces, World Comes to an End
Japan’s Giant Gundam sculpture was one of my favorite man-made since I started writing this here site. So when I stumbled onto these images and video footage of the recently-dismantled Gundam statue, I wept. Okay, so I had just been cutting onions, but it still made me sad.

Gundam Head Ashtray: Who’s Been Putting Their Coals Out in My Mobile Suit?

Gundam Head Ashtray: Who’s Been Putting Their Coals Out in My Mobile Suit?
I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but Japan can be a weird place. At least if you judge the country strictly by the oddball gadgets and toys that they release, on a regular basis, they are.

Cardboard Gundam: Too Awesome for Words

Cardboard Gundam: Too Awesome for Words
Twitter user cadeson stumbled upon the polar opposite of that other cardboard Gundam: This jaw-dropping creation is a replica of the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam from Gundam SEED. What it lacks in color it more than makes up for in detail, particularly on its head and fingers.

Shanzhai Gundam

Shanzhai Gundam
If you can make it, China can copy it: While other Japanese have been busy building another classic robot statue, and South Koreans are building a gigantic robot statue of their own, this orange Gundam copycat is being built in a theme park in Sichuan, China.

Your Very Own Mini Giant Gundam

Your Very Own Mini Giant Gundam
If you’re lucky enough to live in Japan, you’ve had plenty of opportunity to check out the giant Gundam statue that’s been around for the last year or so. But for those of us here in the States and other places around the world, we’ve got no giant Gundam love.

If you don’t have an iPhone or an Android phone yet, why not get a Gundam Robot Phone instead? This phone will be released by Japan’s third biggest mobile phone carrier, SoftBank Mobile, who has 25 million subscribers.

10-Foot Gundam Made From Leftover Model Part Trees
Ever wonder what to do with those stupid grids of plastic left over when you assemble a model? How about build a Gundam? That’s exactly what these guys did with their leftover bits and pieces. It took over 250 man-hours to build the RG (Recycle Grade) RX-78-2 Gundam, which measures in at nearly 10-feet tall.

Amazing Papercraft Statue of Gundam is 4 Feet High!

Amazing Papercraft Statue of Gundam is 4 Feet High!
While it’s certainly not as tall as the 59 foot Gundam in Japan, this 4 foot-tall version is still pretty impressive. Taras Lesko built this amazing statue of Freedom Gundam out of paper. This is his latest papercraft project which took him over 2 months to construct.

Gundam Statue Rises Again (Almost)

Gundam Statue Rises Again (Almost)
I was pretty sad when they announced plans to take down the 60-foot Gundam statue that was erected last year in Tokyo. Luckily, Bandai recently announced that they were going to put it up again in Shizuoka, 125 miles west of Tokyo.

Gundam Calling T-Shirt: That’S One Huge Guitar
Let’s play six degrees of Gundam! How many degrees of separation does Elvis Presley have from Gundam? One! Elvis Presley’s debut album art looked like this, which The Clash emulated for their album London Calling, which Chop Shop emulated for this Gundam shirt.
