A shopping center in the Japanese town of Ise has installed a 4-meter (13-foot) tall statue of the Mobile Suit Gundam anime’s RX-78-2 robotic mecha with a banner wishing good luck to Japan’s Mizuki Noguchi at the upcoming Beijing Olympics…
Ray’ s Take: …What? Gundam playing sports, maybe? Or G Gundam fighting tournament? But…this is running!!! Give her a Jogging Gundam or something! RX-78 can’t run!
