big ass Mobile Suit Gundam in tokyo

zany as usual those japanese

In celebrating the 30th anniversary of popular anime Mobil Suit Gundam, engineers in Tokyo built a life-size, 1/1 scale model of a RX-78 Gundam robot (known as the Real G) at a park in Odaiba Island. The massive statue stands tall at 59 foot (18m) and features a remote-controllable head unit, 50 different light emitting units and 14 mist dispensers for visual effects and possibly, for watering the park lawn. The robot will stay in Shiokze Park from 7/11 - 8/30, so if you're in Tokyo this summer, check it:
