The Gundam Lives!

IT MOVES!

It’s been up for a week now. The 1/1 scale RX-78 Gundam in Odaiba, Japan is a masterpiece of modern technology and popular culture, and I want one. Nay, I NEED ONE.

It’s very well detailed and has some nice special effects like lighting and steam coming from its vents. It looks so much like a model, and I want to play with it.

And then the head turns.

I swear it works. Japan is just showing it off to mock the rest of the world in how far behind we are in mech building.

And now to show off how cool it looks at night, here are some night pics from Pink Tentacle. Definitely check out their blog for more awesome night pics.
