    They should have made it much taller though, like 30ft minimum :|
    I was honestly hoping for a 1/1 Scale model myself. In the final pose when he shoots down Zeong. But with a head and arm of course.


    Props to Ravona for the awesome sig! Noel is the greatest and I challenge you to prove me otherwise!

    Well I think it's also neat. Though rather wasteful, it might as well become a national monument for them.

    Pure awesomeness is they build a real gundam that can move and cut/shoot people down. This is just wasting money, matarials and time.

    Y20,000,000 = £150,000 approx

    For that much it should have been a lot better, something like this one:



    "7 meter high, 3 meter wide Gundam, For a size comparison, take a look at the humans in the lower right corner. This statue is quite famous here in Japan, and I've seen it on TV a couple times. It took some dude over ten months to build. There's a cockpit and hydraulic pistons, because the thing moves. That's right, it friggin' moves" [Quote from: kotaku.com]

    Note to self: Since regular Japanese citizens can build something like that never go to war with Japan again.

    i would love to see the colored gundam thing move, friggin awesome. but yeah a plain statue is a waste of tax money, give it to the poor. Maybe we should send some graffiti artists to spraypaint the thing for us. lol

    I think it's kind of funny that since it's a statue of a Gundam, it has to be colored and it has to be ridable and it has to move :x
