Surely you remember the giant 1:1 Gundam Japan erected in 2009. Built by Bandai, the monolithic robot has stood watch ovef Tokyo and spawned many imitators in the last year and a bit.

Some of you probably take a sort of ‘so-what’ attitude here. That’s understandable: Gundams are practically space-faring robot ninjas in the show, and this guy can barely turn his head. So what indeed, right? Well, check out this time-lapse video, directed by ‘darwinfish105‘, which is a beautiful testament to the epic stoicism of the statue.
