■ Exhibition Details
The “Gunpla x Iron-Blooded Orphans at Nagoya Parco” exhibition aims to express the world of the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans that started its second season in October 2016 through Gunpla. To be held on the eighth floor of Nagoya Parco between Jan. 20 and Feb. 13, this is the second volume of the special exhibition previously featured in Ikebukuro (closed on Nov. 7, 2016).
Besides revealing the first Gunpla featuring the new form of the Gundam Barbatos Lupus, the main mobile suit of the series, there will also be numerous other suits on display at the “Gunpla x Mobile Suit Museum,” such as the Gundam Barbatos and the Graze Ein from the first season as well as those introduced in the second season.
There will be plenty to enjoy for those new to Gunpla, too, such as the “Gunpla x The Tracks of Tekkadan” where visitors can review the battles between Tekkadan and Gjallarhorn through dioramas, see a huge 1/10 scale standing image of the Gundam Barbatos (piloted by Mikazuki Augus), and visit a photo spot to take a picture together with the members of Tekkadan.
While you’re there, you can get your hands on some limited edition merch such as an event-exclusive Gundam Barbatos Gunpla and other related goodies, and if you’re early enough, you will also get presented with a limited edition sticker as a bonus (distributed in order of arrival)!
