After months of teasing and testing the incredible 1/1-scale Gundam in Japan, the official opening ceremony for the Gundam Factory Yokohama took place three days ago. The full “life-size” Gundam was seen doing all its moves coupled with a live music/light show.

Yoshiyuki Tomino, the Gundam creator, was also present at the ceremony, expressing how impressed he was that the Gundam was successfully built in Japan, and what an undertaking it was. The 40th-anniversary ceremony was completed with Gundam taking its first steps as seen in the video above, which was sped up 10 times to make it seem even more real.
