Steal This Gundam!  


If you go to Odaiba in Tokyo, you will find an eighteen metre tall Gundam waiting for you. Go to Shiokaze Kouen, then head south (harbour on your right). Keep going and you'll find a large group of people taking photographs of it. The ones that really amused me were the guys that stood in front of it pointing up at it while their girlfriends took their picture.

At certain intervals, its engines light up and steam ejects. More photos below the cut.

The crane between the Gundam’s legs amuses me far more than it ought to.
Williamgenkischuldich on 14th June 2009 06:45 (UTC)
I was taking the picture and this man just suddenly appeared out of nowhere. I waited until he'd gone and took a picture without him, but when I went back to look at the pictures, that one was much better. Made me laugh too.

Williamgenkischuldich on 14th June 2009 06:46 (UTC)
It's worth seeing, definitely.

Awww, I wanna gooooo~ *paws at the Gundam* Why didn't I know about this before I left? XD;;;

Awesome pictures!
Williamgenkischuldich on 14th June 2009 06:47 (UTC)
It's really new, so it might not have even been started at that that time.

Thanks!

I THINK it's the RX-78 Gundam from the original series, but don't quote me on that. :)
h_w: chocoboshungry_worm on 13th June 2009 11:47 (UTC)
This is definitely crazy and cool!
Williamgenkischuldich on 14th June 2009 07:05 (UTC)
Thanks. :)

Now, to devise a plan to get that from Japan to my backyard without anyone noticing.... XD

I'm glad to finally see a picture where they have a person there for comparison.
Williamgenkischuldich on 14th June 2009 07:07 (UTC)
That's easy. You fly it. :)

That was actually an accident. I took the picture and the guy had swung into the shot on his crane in the last second. But it turned out to be a funnier shot for it!
Raeguiltyschu on 14th June 2009 01:08 (UTC)
That may be the most awesome thing I've ever seen, omfg. How long has it been there?! I really have to check it out next time I go to Japan. XD
Williamgenkischuldich on 14th June 2009 07:08 (UTC)
Thanks! It was only just finished in the last week or so.
Jesshideincarnate on 14th June 2009 08:19 (UTC)
That is pretty bad ass.
Williamgenkischuldich on 14th June 2009 08:21 (UTC)
Isn't it? :)
Jesshideincarnate on 15th June 2009 12:36 (UTC)
Can I have one? I'd be the coolest kid at school.
windavatarkaze_no_ko on 14th June 2009 16:43 (UTC)
God Japan, only you can pull this one off.

The Gundam is awesome, but I also love how you got the sunset in there. Especially the last shot--it's all animu dramatic.
Williamgenkischuldich on 23rd June 2009 12:55 (UTC)
Thanks. :) I went for the sunset.

This is made of win and awesome. I want to go to the gundam statue. *makes plans for this one day.. one day* Awesome picture too!
Williamgenkischuldich on 23rd June 2009 12:56 (UTC)
You may have to hurry up as it's not going to be around for much longer, I think.
