    Japan to Raise 1:1 scale Gundam

    But it's only going to be up for 2 months for the Gundam Convention... whaaa!

    Oh well... I'd rather see a Wing 0, 00 Gundam, Burning Gundam, or Freedom Gundam.

    Uhm, wasn't this the same build they had in shows/exhibits all the time, but just more complete?

    I would be nice if you could actually sit in the cockpit for once....too bad.

    I think this is a different one.
    The float and other parts were not full scale like this.

    As you can see they need a lot of structural support to even get it upright.

    Hopefully they'll get people interested in building mobile versions by doing this.

    It looks a bit crude actually,but then that's in comparison with the actual anime.I guess we shouldn't expect something like the Freedom
    in real life.

    It's not a problem to design them. It's a material roblem and more importantly. Mechs are inefficient compared to dedicated systems like tanks etc. They are only more mobile, and as JGZinv argued before "real armor is better than speed". Razz Also if you can put a super weapon on a mech than you can put a much better weapon on ships etc.

    And we don't have any red haired girls named Asuka to pilot them either!!!! lol!
    Seriously now...if we did have something like Gundams or EVAs think how cool the evening news might look:
    "This evening a squad of Gundam XXs(or EVAs)took out another Iranian/North Korean
    missile base.Pictures at 11"

    Aye... unless we're talking Wing Gundam 0 perhaps, an orbital frame like Jehuty or Dolores would be better.

    Frames are to LEVs what Gundams are to Zakus.

    I think it's more like an interstella ship to an aircraft.

    Shocked Wow, that was quick.
    It's the latest RX78 mechanic design. Some backpack thrusters appear to have gas pipes. If this is real the statue could do some fire works.
