I didn't even need to be at Odaiba to take this nice photo of the Gundam, all I had to do was visit Youtube.^^

I'd do that if it wasn't $8000.

I wonder how much it cost to build that thing, and if its just a statue or if it has sound effects and whatnot.

That must be a very expensive photo of Gundam..

740,000+ yen!?

They should at least dress up the guy or girl as Amuro...
Then again, maybe its not such a good idea.
