This summer marks the 30th anniversary of Mobile Suit Gundam. To celebrate, a full-sized Gundam &mdash yes, all 18 meters and 35 tons of him &mdash is being built in a park in Odaiba. Yes, this means that if you go to Tokyo this summer between July 11 and August 31, you’ll probably see him towering over the city as you drive across the Rainbow Bridge on your way to the city from Narita.
This Gundam’s not just a stationary statue, either. He’s going to be able to move his head and emit light and mist from different parts of his body. Awesome.
