Oh Gundam Tree, Oh Gundam Tree

Its a Gundam!!!...Tree!!!

  
  
Oh Gundam tree! Oh Gundam tree!
How mecca are your branches.
 
I would have actually continued to farce the song, but then I realized how disappointed I was with the Gundam tree. Its alright, I guess... but that's kind of the problem. A tree, with several glass boxes with awesome gundam figures in them, just doesn't sell me on the gundam tree. Not only was this Japan, the country that actually built a 1:1 gundam, but the tree was in Akihabara, where our nerd powers are strongest. Would it have been so hard for them to make gundam that looked like a tree, then dangled figures from it?
 
I mean, at the very least I was kind of hoping for a more traditional tree with the figures posed/dangling out each pore, but hey... this is cool too, I guess.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who was a little disappointed by the Gundam "tree".

Better than nothing, I guess. Plus I want those figures.

I still wouldn't complain if it was in my house, especially if I get to keep the figures on christmas day.
