In the video embedded below, you can actually see the engineers designing and building the massive machine. There are even more videos that details the conception and design of the mecha. The iteration of the suit is based on the original Gundam design from the 1979 anime series. And, even though the Coronavirus pandemic brought everything to a standstill, trust the Japanese to put their head down and just get to it. The mecha is being built as a part of the Gundam exhibit and it is not yet known when the giant mecha will be available to be seen and experienced by the public. 

We, at Digit would truly love to check out this titanic robot. Let’s hope that we do actually get to see the mecha up close.
