If you were all hot and bothered at the thought of the 1.5-meter tall Gundam model kit that sells for $3,400, you will positively wet yourself now. The citizens of Shizukoa, Japan will be getting an 18-meter tall life size statue of Gundam.
The statue will stand near the JR Higashishizuoka Station and is being built to mark the 30th anniversary of the Gundam plastic model kits. The project will be completed on July 24 and statue will wield a Beam Saber.
I wonder if they will keep it clean, there is something sad about thinking Gundam will be standing there riddled with bird nests and covered in bird poo. The thing is very cool.
