Today is the last day that you’ll see the 1/1 scale Gundam in Odaiba island, Japan. (!__!) Though it’s sad news for Gundam fans who still haven’t seen it, there’s still a reason to smile because starting today, August 31, a limited run of Nissin Cup Noodle with free mini Gunpla kit from the Cup Noodle X Gundam Project will be available in Japan. Still part of the 30th anniversary of Gundam, these 1/380 scale Gunplas by Bandai may be the smallest kit produced so far. There are four kits to collect, the RX-78-2 Gundam, MS-06S CHAR’s ZAKU II, MS-06F ZAKU II and the MS-09 DOM.
You’ll also get the chance to have the 1/100 scale Gundam MG (Master Grade) RX-78-2 promotion gift from Nissin. If you want to participate in the draw, you have to send in two tickets included in the mini Gunpla kit along with your personal details. Only 1000 kits will be given away to lucky winners. Cup Noodle X Gundam Project runs from August 31 to November 30.
