Earlier today we posted about the siting of another RX-78 NT-1 Gundam Alex Gundam knockoff statue located at an amusement park in China.... Now this Gundam knockoff gets a MS Girl Gundam knockoff fan-art image.
The MS-06 Zaku Tofu is a tofu treat which was a big hit in Japan ever since the product was released this past March. The release gained even more popularity during a limited release of the product with an exclusive heat hawk spoon. But many had missed out getting the limited release, so Sagamiya Foods will once again promote a special MS-06 Zaku Tofu Campaign (Japan Only)!
Between July 1st - August 31st, 2012, any purchase of the MS-06 Zaku Tofu treat will include a form for folks to enter the Heat Hawk spoon lottery draw contest. 500 winners will be chosen to receive the special Heat Hawk spoon.
Starting today, Tokyo's Grand Pacific Le Daiba hotel has
three Gundam themed hotel rooms for the Amuro Ray in all of us. Tokyo's Grand
Pacific Le Daiba is located near Gundam Front Tokyo.
Gundam Front Tokyo, which features a huge, life-size
Gundam statue and a museum, opened April 19 in the neighborhood and has turned
out to be a popular attraction. The hotel's campaign is part of an effort in
the area to take advantage of Gundam's popularity.
Earlier this year,
a life-sized Gundam was erected in Tokyo's Odaiba (again!), and the hotel is
hoping to capitalize on the increased Gundam tourism.
The theme rooms, dubbed "Project Room G," have
illustrations of characters on the walls and other Gundam-related ornaments. Rates start at ¥27,000 (US$340), and the above
video provides a tour of two rooms, including showing off the complementary
amenities. Guests should free to dream of life-sized Gundam. Japanese
politicians already are. [News viaKotaku]
