Have you ever wondered what the offspring of the Unit 01 Evangelion and the RX-78 Gundam would look like? Wonder no more. Here’s a sick LEGO amalgam made by MOCpages member Gyuta K., fusing two of the most famous mecha to make one bad ass machine.
I’m not sure if you can actually make phone calls with the Bandai Phone Braver 7, but I don’t mind. I mean really, it’s a cell phone with bendable arms and legs, so what’s not to like?
The Phone Braver 7 (model GE-46) is an anthropomorphic mobile phone from Bandai’s Soul of Chogokin series.
Construction and erection of the 18-m (59 ft) Tetsujin 28-go (aka Gigantor) statue in Kobe, Japan wrapped up a few days ago, more than a couple of weeks after the Gundam statue – the Neil Armstrong of robot statues – was dismantled.
The Gundam statue isn’t even formally exhibited yet and we already have news on another 1:1 scale giant robot statue that will be built in Japan! Widely acknowledged as the first giant robot ever to be featured in manga, Tetsujin 28-go (“Iron Man 28”) is finally going to live up to its Westernized name, Gigantor.
A 59-ft (18-m) statue of the grandfather of giant robots will be installed in Kobe’s Wakamatsu (“A giant robot statue will be placed here after the giant Gundam statue is finished”) Park.
The RX-78 statue – 8th Wonder of the World, King of all Statues, Future Prime Minister – is finished. It’s done. It’s awesome. It’s bitchin. Japan the best. Japan is the Michael Jordan of nations. Japan is the knees of the bee’s knees.
A 1:1 scale Gundam statue is being built in Tokyo as part of the Japanese government’s quest to acquire a monopoly of geeks to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the world famous anime series. The Mainichi Daily News has pictures from the construction site in Shiokaze Park.
The statue is a life-size model of the RX-78-2 Gundam that appeared in the very first Gundam series, a model from which most successive Gundam designs get their iconic samurai-style appearance.
The Gundam statue is made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic over a steel frame.
