Life-Sized Gundam Statue

Note: This post is not handheld-gaming-related at all. This pic set is just too cool to pass up.

Here's another reason to love (or fear) Japan: a freakin' 1/1 scale Gundam . Or as I would like to call it, a giant robot statue full of awesome.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Gundam franchise someone thought it would a good idea to build a freaking life-sized statue of a Gundam RX-78 mecha. It stands 59 foot tall and boasts 50 points in which pretty lights will shoot out. No word if these "lights" are actually skin-scalding lasers.

I would totally buy a ticket to Japan this intant if they say that one could go inside this life-sized Gundam, in like the cockpit or somthing.

Japan! That's says it all, even watching it in photos,anyone will take a look at it will exactly know where it is standing. I would love to be there and see the real thing. They did a splendid job on details.
