Japan Finally Did It


They built a life-size, 1:1-scale Gundam. It doesn’t work (we think), but the damn thing is still 59 feet tall and hanging out in Odaiba (which is very close to the Tokyo Big Sight, if you’re up on your Tokyo geography). Supposedly, the head can move and it has lights, and will only be up for two months, until the end of some big Gundam fest at the end of July. I’m dead certain that afterwards, they’ll be walking that thing to war. Hopefully they’ll attack North Korea first, so we can have enough to time to build Gundam Maxter. More pics over at Danny Choo.
