It's only a matter of time, when we have tons of Gundams for every nation and mankind lives in space colonies or in the moon.

It better not end up in another incident whereby fans get injured from a falling beam saber. -.-

O dear god it's gonna look like a giant glowing dildo and thus 9 months from the completion of the statue, Japan will go through phenomena know as "The Great Gundam Baby Boom!" and all the babies must be named either Amuro or Char.... well girls will be named Frow Bo
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't laugh or cry..... All it does from dusk till dawn is make the soldiers die.

I was lucky enough to see this being built and completed last May/June in Tokyo, when it was originally displayed. It's a pretty impressive sight and nicely detailed.

O-ho, we are so freaking screwed. This is basically just a prototype for the real thing. A few months ago I had a dream about being in a factory of hundreds of life-size gundams. I was scared shitless
