Night-time Tokyo As It Should Be: Gundamful

Life-size Gundam lights up Odaiba at night.

We've already seen the more or less complete Gundam statue, but Pink Tentacle decided to take things a step further and show it to us in optimal conditions: aka, at night. They also caught some of the motion, as well as all of the lights, which make the Gundam look simply spectacular, even if you're not a mech fan.







These aren't all of the photos, so make sure you hit up Pink Tentacle for the rest.

obviously you've never looked in a mirror.

And yes, Gundam is awesome

Further confirmation that Tokyo is fucking badass.

The dust photo is kind of chilling with the statue's eyes.
  Something I must see in person..

@kiroshimatsu: Delicious perspective.

When will Japan stop with the pretense that this is a Gundam 'statue'?  This is obviously the response to DPRK's missile launch and nuclear tests.  "Hey, North Korea, we've had Gundam technology for decades; don't mess with us, we can assemble a fully functional Gundam in scant weeks.  Do you really want to see who's going to win in this arms race?"
