This insane 1:1 scale 60 foot tall, 35 Ton Gundam RX-71 is nearing completion in Odaiba, Tokyo. It should be finished in July in order to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Mobile Suit Gundam. Supposedly it can move it's head and lights and bells will be going off everywhere as it shoots mist from 50 points on it's body out at the curious on-lookers. This is some serious engineering. I would think for all the advancements we have today, this would be a real, working giant Gundam. I mean even just a little?
