Father of Gundam Okawara Kunio 50th Anniversary Exhibition in Ocean Park!

Now you can dive into the global popularity of mecha at Ocean Park between 1 April and 4 June 2023, the first stop for the Father of Gundam — Okawara Kunio 50th Anniversary Exhibition.

Peer into the unprecedented history of this legendary mechanical designer and his creations at Okawara Kunio Mech Design Base, the first-ever full retrospective on his mechanical designs in Hong Kong, featuring over 300 sketches, including 20 rarely exhibited original works, as well as secret designs and models of his earliest creations.

Look back at his many ground-breaking mechanical designs, from the classic Yatterman and King of Braves GAOGAIGAR to the Mobile Suit Gundam series, a worldwide cultural icon for over 40 years, and many other pioneering anime works. Giant figures of his designs will be on display, including the much-loved RX-78-2 Gundam and MS-06F Zaku II, as well as his newer creations. Explore an extensive collection of art and documents at Okawara Kunio Mech Design Base to catch a glimpse of rarely seen hand-drawn artwork and see how his expertise in mechanical design infused his work across the decades.

At Waterfront Plaza, you can check out the 2-metre-high Yatter-wan, the trusty giant robot dog, and the 3-metre RX-78-2 Gundam with its Beam Rifle and Shield – the first time these mecha have been displayed together, and a showcase for the many charming elements of Okawara's designs. Ten 1.7-metre Zaku II with their machine guns are standing tall to stun any enemies in their path!

At the Mech Design Base, visit familiar classics as well as original creations such as such as a 2-metre-tall Nine-Tailed Fox Spirit model being exhibited for the first time, and 18 homemade mechanical models from OKAWARA FACTORY, all showcasing his passion for mechanical design.

At the Father of Gundam limited-time store, pick up some essential and exclusive mecha-themed merchandise, including figures, skateboards, towels, badges and more.
