I don't know how many of you guys manage to have some spare room in your memories for items other than characters' birthdays, mech model specs, and/or complicated plot details, but I'm sure at least a few of you remember my post a while back about how the Shiokaze Park in Odaiba was manufacturing a 1:1 scale, “life-size” Gundam model.
Well, Sankaku Complex has spotted a Japanese blog that checked in on the progress of said Gundam, and you can now see a nice pair of recognizable Gundam legs.
The end product, of course, will be a complete Gundam standing at 18 meters (~59 feet tall), and celebrates the Mobile Suit Gundam 30th Anniversary Project. Unfortunately it won't be a fully-working model (I'd love to see the panic THAT would inspire in the media), but it will apparently be able to move its head around, as well as project some light and shoot some mist.
Should be good times when it's unveiled officially this July, eh? In fact, these might be the sexiest legs since Tina Turner's.
