1:1 scale Gundam

A life size Gundam is being shown at "Tokyo Odaida". This is every Gundamn-freak's
dream, to witness their idol up front & personal. "Mobile Suit Gundam 30th Anniversary
Project," is the reason for such an occasion.
The "Real na Gundam" statue of the RX-78-2
model from the first anime series (1979) will stand proudly at Odaiba's Shiokaze Park
at the beginning of July.

The statue will be free for viewing, but it will only stay up for 2 months. It will be built
with fiberglass-reinforced plastic over a steel frame so it can be disassembled later. The
head unit will move and the body will have 50 points that will emit light.

Only the Japanese could have done something to make every "otaku's" dream come to life.
"I" the writer bets that after this, a group of Gundam-freaks will built it again so that this
dream will continue & to stand as Japan's "Statue of Liberty" so to speak.

FIGURES - coming to a store near you!
