Eh, didn't they already build one? And take it down? I saw pictures of one, although it didn't have a beam Saber. I would like to see a different statue, other than the RX-78-2. Maybe the 78-3, for a little color change, or the Zaku-II. Hell I'd even go for Char's Gelgoog.

Well, maybe not. The Gelgoog was always the ugliest of all the mobile suits, right up there with the Rick-Dom.

Ah hell! I'm telling you, it's only a matter of time before it walks, has a beam rifle and working vernier, and gets a crazy pilot. America is doomed!
