Bandai Namco to Erect Giant Gundam

How does Bandai Namco celebrate the 30th anniversary of its Mobile Suit robot franchise? You build a life size Gundam, of course. Made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic over a steel frame, the replica's head will move, 50 points on its body will emit light and mist will be shot out on unsuspecting tourists. The Gundam will be erected in the Odaiba Shiokaze park in July but will only be up for 2 months. They haven't quite decided what to do with it after that time. We think it would make a great companion to the Statue of Liberty.
