The largest mobile Gundam is 18 m (59 ft), achieved by Incorporated Association GUNDAM GLOBAL CHALLENGE (Japan) in Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan, as of 3 December 2020.
The outsized humanoid's design is based on the RX-78-2 Gundam, first introduced in the original 1979 animated series (Mobile Suit Gundam). As well as its towering height, the robot weighs a reported 25 tons (22 tonnes). Testing videos show the Gundam moving individual digits and bending down onto one knee.
Plans for the gigantic mobile Gundam began in 2014 with the launch of the 'Gundam Global Challenge' project, created in celebration of the anime series’ 40th anniversary.
