    I’ve been keeping an eye on this on Kotaku.com. I figure by mid-day they’ll have a ton of pics posted on the site. A few days ago it was just the legs that were up.

    Why would they disassemble it?

    Sure, it’s cool, but not that cool. It’s a taxpayer funded public works of a robot from a mediocre japanese cartoon. Whoopdedoo.

    Besides, Battletech/Mechwarrior is better than Gundam anyway. No stupid self-doubting emo trips or hero vs. 100 battles where the hero wins no contest.

    So since Battletech/Mechwarrior is better, that’d mean that Robotech is on top of the list.. considering that’s where the Battletech mechs were copied from 😉 *dons flameproof suit*. I kid.. I kid.. I loved the Officer’s Battlepod… err I mean Marauder.

    Macross/Robotech, rather. Darn this non-editing 😛

    I think the thing about Gundam that people don’t get is that it is a very old franchise, older than macross even. For it’s time it was a very ground breaking and revolutionary Cartoon (i hate using the term anime, it has too many negative connotations thanks to weeaboo otaku japanophiles) I mean by today’s standards it is mediocre. Think of it as comparing Hendrix to Eddie Van Halen. Technically speaking Van Halen is a superior guitar player, but he wouldn’t have gotten there if hendrix hadn’t been around to write Purple Haze or Voodoo Chile.

    I do have to admit that, like the Robotech mechs, the Gundam styles have aged very gracefully. There’s not many instances in cartoons or comics where something drawn 30 years ago looks pretty damn good by today’s standards. Usually we remember them as “awesome” and then we go back and rewatch the stuff as adults and go “Oh man.. I used to watch this?”

    In an attempt to ease the minds of Japanese people, the Japanese government created a giant robot to aid in the destruction of godzilla.
