The skyline around Shiokaze Park in Odaiba Tokyo has a new feature – An 18 meter tall, 35 ton, full sized GUNDAM! I blogged about it when only the legs were up but in just a few short weeks the torso arms and head have been added to the RX-78 Gundam.
Geeks in and round Tokyo be sure to do a pilgrimage to this “shrine”
Since making my first post about this 1/1 scale bahemoth I learned that not only will the statue be on display in the Shiokaze Park in Odaiba Tokyo from July 11 to August 31 to mark the 30th anniversary of the broadcast of the first Gundam series but it is also the Gundam Project will be a part of an environmental project called “Green Tokyo” to highlight environmental insues not only in Tokyo but worldwide .
though not 100% complete the Gundam Statue has amazing detail
I so wish this could remaina permanet feature in Shiokaze Park
