No, they’re not here for an invasion
This month, giant robots from the anime known as Gundam will be docked in Singapore for an exhibition titled Gundam Docks!
Over the past few days, these Gundam Docks lorries have been travelling across the island towards Ngee Ann City for the exhibition. Did you manage to catch them?
The image of half a Gundam being transported across Singapore is pretty unreal.
They’re all in Ngee Ann City now, for you to gawk and take pictures.
This one’s the RX-78-2 Gundam.

And this is Zaku, standing opposite the RX-78-2 Gundam.
Gundam also want to #SG50
There will also be a limited edition SG50 RX-78-2 Gundam on sale! #simisaialsoSG50 #AssGeeFifty
Check out the completely inconspicuous SG50 logo on its chest plate and Merlion’s head motif on the shield. Distinctly Singapore!
More info on Gundam Docks
The exhibition starts today and will be until 26 June. There’s stuff to do besides looking at Gundams though; Kunio Okawara, the designer of the Gundams you watch and collect, will be coming down on 6 June to meet fans and give a talk.
For the uninitiated, Okawara is the first man in Japan to be a professional mechanic designer — one who designs various mecha-related characters in animation.
Admission is free, and the exhibition will be at B2 of Takashimaya Shopping Centre for the entire month of June, so why not go?
You can’t fly the giant robots though.
