The Legend of the Headless Gundam


August has come and gone, and with it, the life-size Odaiba Gundam-- which is now being taken down. Will it ever appear again? Maybe, maybe not. But the legend says that if you stare out at the Odaiba theme park on a clear night with a full moon, you can see some green eyes glowing in the darkness...

Okay, that's a load of crap. But i can't imagine they'd go to the expense and never display the Gundam again, so hopefully it'll spring back up for other events eventually.

In the meantime, a few of us were talking about the 'bot at KumoriCon-- I think it was Toshi (Yoshida, ADR producer on Gurren Lagann and Kurokami for Bandai Entertainment) who said that he'd calculated the rough shipping costs of the Gundam at $3 million-- which doesn't include the purchase of the Gundam itself, or a place to put it. In other words, it'd be cheaper to build our own than to import the one from Odaiba.

Just sayin'.

Till we meet again old friend...
 
Yeah, no offense to whoever it was that suggested it first, but I thought the whole shipping idea was pretty stupid...  

Also, Happy Strongest Day and Happy Birthday Len!
