▵ Gundam Moving Test on Youtube, 6 times faster version.

“Not Just a statue, it is Moving.”

It is not just a statue, it is designed to move. For this a lot of engineers sweat blood. According to the official article, the planning and research stage alone took two years as the designers worked out how to prevent the robot’s limbs from breaking under their own weight as well as engineering its 24 moveable parts.

On Youtube, they shared a video about moving test. It is not that fast, but looks awesome.
