The Gundam 00 Complete Best limited edition DVD went on sale on July 8th, 2009. I spotted this truck driving through Shibuya advertising ガンダム00.
The Gundam name is said to come from the 2 English words of “gun” and “freedom” to make Gundom. The head of the animation team Mr. Tomino then changed it to the current title, suggesting that Gundam signified a powerful unit wielding a gun powerful enough to hold back enemies, like a hydroelectric dam holding back floods.

For those who want to see some more Gundam photos of the RX78 robot at Odaiba, Tokyo I have a selection of 35 photos I took recently.
There were many people at Odaiba when I took these photos., Everyone was scrambling to find a place to take a photo of Gundam. Mobile phone cameras were going wild!
