Officially the best lamp ever. The best part was how he made the hand do the rocker symbol, that's just hilarious seeing a gundam make that gesture.

It's also sign language for "love" which is more likely the reason for using it.

But yes, that's an amazing likeness.

OMG! That is so *lion roar*in' awesome!

This makes me wanna make sculptures of giant robots out of different material. If only someone could make an M&M's mosaic of Demolishor.

I hear they were going to do one of Char's mobile suits, but they decided against it, because it would burn out three times faster.

UPDATE: After the lantern festival, the Gundam lantern was ferried back to Taipei National University of the Arts. However, a TNUA alumnus who has been busy saving Losheng Sanatorium, a leprosy / Hansen's disease "hospital" (de facto a quarantine center), had an idea and borrowed the lantern from its creator. He and the creator reassembled it in front of the Sanatorium and use it as a guardian of the aging building, an act that highly welcomed by its residents, for they regard the lantern as a symbol of justice.

More update: a video recorded how the lantern was disassembled at TNUA, transported, and reassembled at Losheng Sanatorium.

Can anyone identify the background music?
