1:1 Gundam

Those of you savvy enough on the internet, or at least the kind that might care about this kind of thing, probably already know about this, but just in case:

They’ve built a 1:1 scale Gundam in Tokyo!

I’ll be linking a bunch of different articles about it, mostly from dannychoo, but suffice to say, it looks awesome and I wish I was rich so that I could fly there and see it in person.

Not 100% sure who financed it, but I suspect it was Bandai mostly. It’s for the 30th anniversary of the original Gundam and I think it’ll only be around for another month or two. Maybe someone can start a petition to keep it there for good 😉

Anyway, here are the links to many wonderful pictures and a little video:

It’s soooooooo cool!

Wonder if they’ll make a resin kit from it…. 😉
