The Operation Gundam R Event was officially held by Bandai on November 20th & 21st, 2021 in the Shinjuku Sumitomo Building to convey the importance of plastic recycling and Bandai’s recycling efforts. We couldn’t miss the opportunity to send one of our awesome staff members to visit the site to take photos and see exactly what Bandai was bringing to the table with this event!
The event got on our good side right away with handing us a free Entry Grade Gunpla at the entrance made of eco-friendly plastic. Every visitor to the site received one at they entered – sweet! For those willing to plop down some cash, they also had event-exclusive Gunpla for sale, too!
There were a couple of art installations utilizing recycled runners as the medium for the displays, including this amazing video of the Tea Room exhibit!
When it comes to interesting stuff to look at, the event also boasted some Augmented Reality displays, a photo spot sporting a huge Gunpla at a massive 2m high, an exhibition of Bandai’s latest models and action figures, and a 1/1 Gundam Head made from recycled runners!
