You Must See This Gundam Time-Lapse Video

The Shizuoka Gundam RX-78-2 is keeping tourists happy

We caught this remarkable video over at Pink Tentacle, and I was stunned at it's loveliness -- it's too incredible not to share.  Created by YouTube user DarwinFish105,  it shows a time-lapse recording of the 1/1 Gundam on display in Shizuoka as thousands of people stop by it to pay tribute (and maybe stop by the cafe while they are at it). There's plenty mroe where that came from too, so be sure to check out the guy's YouTube account if you want more. The Gundam will be there untiil early next year, so if you've been planning that Japan trip, now might be a good time to get the gears in motion if you want to see this in person!

I started focusing on the clouds in the background, if only they were that interesting normally. Needs Wing Zero next to it.

But it would be under my backyard. I think Gundams would be a great government project but if I could build a group of these I would so then my friends and I could fight and fly around in space.

That is awesome.

Damn. That statue looks even more awesome than I thought it would. Oh, how I wish I could see it. I didn't even know the head could move, the eyes could light up, or that the vents released steam. Tho why isn't the beam saber beam pink?
