Yokohama's mighty walking Gundam is striking a new pose for a special winter event!


Fans can make their way to GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA later this month to enjoy a special presentation inspired by this season's newest installment. GFY Winter Illumination 2022 feat. Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury will be a unique winter production spotlighting the RX-78F00 Gundam. Set to YOASOBI's "Shukufuku," the opening theme for the series, it will employ lights, lasers and a new pose inspired by the series.


The factory will continue to light up the night with "NIGHT VIEWING," in conjunction with Yokohama's yorunoyo art illuminations. For an hour each night, you'll be able to view the city's bright lights from the GUNDAM-LAB's second floor observation deck.

Before that, though, GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA is celebrating another title. Starting November 12, the entertainment complex will be celebrating the DVD and Blu-ray release of Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan's Island. Visitors will receive a piece of collab art:
