    A nice high definition video from Vimeo user Darwinfish105 shows us that the 1:1 scale Gundam model that had been on display in Tokyo last summer is almost ready to be viewed at its new home near of Higashi-Shizuoka station:

    This time the 18-meter-tall robot will stand near JR Higashishizuoka Station holding a Beam Saber, a signature weapon of Gundam in a popular sci-fi animation series, according to toy company Bandai Co., which leads the project.

    Bandai started the project to mark the 30th anniversary of the release of its plastic model series featuring Gundam and other combat robots and picked Shizuoka as the site for the exhibition starting July 24 as it has a key factory for components of the models dubbed Gunpla.
