Despite Covid restrictions preventing spectators from watching the Olympic events, there is one giant robot keeping an eye on things.
With the men’s climbing event underway for the bouldering and lead finals, a full-scale statue of a robot named Gundam from the anime series “Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn” can be seen in the background watching climbers as they scale the giant wall.
Gundam is a Japanese military sci-fi media franchise, created by Yoshiyuki Tomino and Sunrise. It features giant robots named “Gundam” where most of them are huge humanoid vehicles controlled by a human pilot in the cockpit.
Olympic fans have been loving the cameo as they watch the event unfold at in DiverCity Tokyo Plaza in Odaiba.
