Whether you're already a hardcore fan of Gundam and all of its iterations or totally fresh into what Gundam actually is, we've got what you need to explore the wonderful world of huge manned robots (also called mecha's for short).
Throughout February 24th until March 1st at the National Museum of Science & Technology in Stockholm, Sweden an installation of Gundam will have landed at the current “Robots – Making Machines Human” exhibition! You, your friends and family will all be able to discover how a franchise that began over 40 years ago (YES, it all started all the way back in 1979) has continued to prosper into a new age of cool fighting mecha's - both keen to adhere to the older generations and new one's as well!
The Gundam workshop is free and will be available in the Technical Museum's "Robots" exhibition between 10:00-19:00’
At the Gundam installation you will be able to:
- Learn more about what Gundam actually is and explore the extent of the Gundam universe
- Play the Gundam video games, such as 'Gundam Versus' and jump right into the mecha action
- Build your very own Gunpla for free and bring it home with you
Oh? But 'what IS Gunpla' you might ask! Gunpla is an extremely popular line of mecha model kits that are made by us at BANDAI. The name of the line comes from a portmanteau of the words “Gundam” and “Plastic Model (Plamo)”, and Gunpla are poseable model kits that are based on the various mobile weapons of Mobile Suit Gundam franchise, mainly the Mobile Suits.
Gunpla is currently the most popular model kit line produced by us at BANDAI, selling hundreds to thousands of these mecha model kits every year. As they are model kits, they are molded on plastic sprues or runners, usually made of PS plastic. Throughout the days of the Gundam installation at the exhibition you will be able to build your own Gunpla for free and take it home to show off your very own Gundam mecha to everyone!
For more Gundam fun, be sure to keep an eye out on our Social Channels this month to participate in our online initiative, the 'Gundam School' where we'll be teaching you about the wondrous world of Gundam and even have a little pop-quiz at the end of it all to see how well we've taught you! We're looking forward seeing you at the National museum of Science and Technology and on our Social Channels. / Joy Bratt Martinez, Community Manager.
