When you think of Japan, you probably think of Gundam. Maybe you think of vending machines. Now both have been joined into one single entity. Behold, the Gundam-shaped vending machine.
As Waseda’s Jeffrey Hall points out, the vending machine has been rolled out at Aichi Prefecture’s Lagunasia water park.
A Gundam-themed vending machine has been unveiled at Aichi Prefecture's Lagunasia water park, marking 40 years since the release of the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime series. Unfortunately, it only sells canned coffee. #gundam #anime #coffee #ガンダム https://t.co/hzofEbQaOl— Jeffrey J. Hall (@mrjeffu) July 17, 2019
The machine has also been spotted at other locations, including Tokyo’s Roppongi Hills.
ガンダム自販機ありw— ansea_dq10 (@AnseaDq10) July 15, 2019
It was unveiled earlier this autumn.
While it only sells coffee, at least that coffee is Gundam themed.
ガンダムコラボのジョージアエメマン、スーパーでもコンビニでもガンダムとシャアザクと量産型ザクと旧ザクしかないなと思ってたけど、自販機で小さい170g缶を買ったらガウが出て、嬉しくてもう一本買ったらミデア出た✌️ pic.twitter.com/nznWrzEb7A— スパーダ (@SPADA_MC20) May 25, 2019
