Giant Gundam Robot in Fuji Park

As real-life giant robots go, this one is the biggest. As the culmination of a long-running project, a Japanese team has built a 59-feet tall full 1:1 scale replica of the iconic manga/anime mecha Gundam at the Gundam Crisis attraction at Fujikyu Highland, at the base of Mt. Fuji — protecting Tokyo from evil robots and, if necessary, giant monsters. Its size is impressive enough, but it lights up at night and the head swivels so it can keep a keen robotic eye out for the bad guys.
