Two Robot Figures in One Year

4 Aug

gundam_projectNot long ago, a 18-meter-tall (about 59-feet-tall) Gundam statue stood up in Tokyo, Japan. The “life-size” Gundam statue marks the 30th anniversary of the first anime series in the Mobile Suit Gundam space war anime franchise. Many people have already talked about this and took tons of pictures in sorts of different angles. After the showcase, the statue has moved to Sony PlayStation home for another month for showing. Sadly, it is now gone. But the statue sure created some good praises and many talks around the world.

Gundam Icon Review some of the beautiful pictures.

So what are you up to next, Japan? Looks like Kobe is doing the same – building a full scale robot statue – Tetsu Jin 28. It is going to be the symbol of the city’s revival after the 1995 Kobe Earthquake. This “life-size” T-28 steel statue stands 60-feet-tall, and is expected to finish construction in September 2009. Tetsu Jin 28 will be a permanent landmark at Kobe, Akamatsu Park unlike the Gundam at Odaiba.
