"I feel tremendous strength and power for this statue"

Someone has erected a 60ft gundam in Japan in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the series that has spawned multiple spin-offs, movies, games, toys, and general giant robot hysteria in Japan and worldwide. I myself am afflicted with this illness and have been for quite some time; when I was younger I would order the models from Japan and spend hours building them.
This is the kind of thing that could only happen in Japan. Imagine if someone built a 60ft Sentinel with a bunch of X-Men fighting it to celebrate the comic's anniversary. Wouldn't happen. But if it did, I would be right there with some fake claws, leather jacket and sweet gelled up wolverine hair getting crunk. Or I would paint myself blue and wear fur and act smart like the beast (aka funniest X-Men ever).
