Are you a Gundam fan?
You may have heard of the recent giant Gundam robot installation in Japan. This moving Gundam robot was first meant to open in October. However, the pandemic delayed its opening and pushed it to December 19.
This giant robot installation towers over at 60 feet, weighing about 25 tons. Many long-time fans will recognize this as the robot from Mobile Suit Gundam, a 1970 anime series. Like most of its action figures, this large robot has about 24 articulating joints.
Are you looking to celebrate this revolutionary creation with some Gundam merch? Here are some of the best anime merchandise to help you celebrate 25 years of Gundam. These are some of the best Gundam merch ideas for either you or a friend who loves Gundam.
1. Gundam Clothing

2. Mobile Suit Gundam WING Manga
Unlike most mainstream anime out there, the Gundam franchise didn't start as a manga. Gundam was an anime that had manga adaptations later in its life. Creators released manga adaptations when fans began looking for more content.
However, this means that not many have read the manga series. If you're part of the population that hasn't read the Gundam manga, this is a great opportunity to start. If you're looking to introduce your kid or friend to the franchise, start with the manga.
The Mobile Suit Gundam WING manga is a retelling of the original anime series. You may also discover new additions that didn't make it into the show.

4. Havitar Gundam Mug
Another practical Gundam merch idea is a Gundam mug. A Havitar Gundam mug enhances the idea of coffee mug gifts, especially for Gundam fans. The mug, made of PVC on the outside, is a replica of the Mobile Suit Gundam helmet head.
It comes with durable stainless steel for easy cleaning. It can also keep your cold or hot drinks at your preferred temperature for a short period. You may also open and close the lid on top the avoid spilling your drink.
5. Bandai Spirits Gundam Astray Noir
If you've been building Gundam models for a while, you may like the Bandai Spirits Astray Noir. The Bandai Hi-Resolution model is a great way to challenge intermediate builders. Many long-time Gundam fans will recognize the model as Dante Gordigiani.
The model comes with great and impressive detail. With plastic and die-cast pieces, this model will remain durable once assembled. The wings on this model look almost like tiny swords.
