A real full scale (1:1) Gundam was recently built and unveiled at the Gundam Crisis attraction at Fujikyu Highland, Japan. This 18m tall model is based on the original RX-78 Gundam piloted by Amuro Ray in the first Gundam series, Mobile Suit Gundam.
While Gundam was never really a stranger to me, I’ve only become a fan with the Seed (C.E.) series. So, obviously I do not really know about most of the other Gundam units that are around, especially not the original Gundam. However, it would still so damn cool to be able to come face to face with a full scale Gundam unit.
You can check out more pictures here. It’s a Japanese site, but I’ve linked it through Google’s language tool. You’ll be able to make sense of the image captions even if the rest of the entry doesn’t.
Now… if only they would make a full scale unit of Freedom… While I highly doubt it, it would be awesome if this starts a new trend of building more 1:1 scale Gundam attractions.
