The Gundam Base Tokyo Logo

The Gundam Base Tokyo (GBT) (ガンダムベース東京 Gandamu Bēsu Tōkyō?) is a store themed after the Gundam franchise. It opened on August 19, 2017, replacing Gundam Front Tokyo at Diver City Tokyo Plaza in Odaiba, Tokyo, Japan.[1]

Overview

The Gundam Base is a Gunpla store chain that first opened in South Korea in 2003 and in Taiwan in 2005, with 11 branches operating between the two countries. Aside from Gunpla, these stores also sell non-Gundam products from Bandai.[2]

The previous incarnation of The Gundam Base Tokyo opened as Gundam Front Tokyo on April 19, 2012 and closed its doors on April 5, 2017.[3]
