Gundam multiverse awaits Bangkokians in Siam Centre


Fans of the Japanese fictional Gundam multiverse flocked to either admire or snap up special “Gunpla” kits when the Gundam Base Thailand officially opened its doors on Thursday in Bangkok’s Siam Centre.

Gunpla (Gundam plastic model kit) became popular across the world since the dramatic military fiction storyline featuring spectacular robot battles hit anime screens in 1979. Created by Yoshiyuki Tomino and Sunrise, the franchise features giant robots or “mecha” named “Gundam”.

Gundam Base Thailand is the first outlet for the franchise in Southeast Asia and the 14th around the world, including branches in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China.
