Life-Size Gundam Completed

By Nopy

The life-sized Gundam that Bandai had been constructing for the past few months was finally completed this week, and it’s mighty impressive. The RX78 Gundam was built to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Gundam series and stands 18 metres tall. It is currently on display in Odaiba, Japan.

Although there have been some claims of life-sized gundams being built in the past, as far as I know they’ve all just been hoaxes like the one below:

This makes the Odaiba Gundam the first life-sized Gundam in the world. For those of you wondering if it can move, I’m sorry to disappoint but it doesn’t look like it can walk or fly, although the head can move from side to side as seen in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykamCJsKFBI

For all the hardcore Gundam fans out there, I suggest you go visit Odaiba before the Gundam is taken away :)
