Even though this is still economically unfeasible, where do I sign up? Cool

I wonder if I can still that Hikari....

That is awesome. If I could afford it, I would buy that. Sadly, I only have about $1000 in the bank and I have tuition and school books and lots of anime and manga to buy... and I'm currently paying off the car I just bought.

I wonder if it opens up to let you see the insides, like a really big Pefect Grade model kit?

I'd REALLY be interested in it if it were Char's Zaku, instead of the Gundam.

Is the model included or do I have to buy her separately? Twisted Evil

Now, show me Wing Zero Custom, and I shall consider purchasing one, or perhaps Freedom. Not sure, I like both of those. I'd also like to see Deathscythe Hell Custom, myself.

You're not gonna do a sex crime on her, are you? Because there's a law against that and the police will arrest you for it.

Anyways, the model that was next to the Gundam is a living, breathing person. So she's not included and nor can you buy her separately. You can't buy people. And I would like to have that life-sized Gundam.

This has been in the news a lot recently, but I KNOW I've seen this announced a year or two ago... but I can't seem to find any info on it. Maybe I'm psychic. Anime dazed

Thanks for killing his joke, Riyousha. It was pretty funny 'til I read your post.

As for this, I've seen something like it before. Except it was a 3 foot Gundam that you could play with. It was like an action figure, with moveable arms and everything. I can't give the site where I saw it, because it is no longer running (long since out of business I think). But 5 feet is something new. I'm not spending $3000 on it though.

You're a bit late. They released a Hyper Hybrid 1/12 MS-06S Char's Zaku II in 2001. This is simply the newest 'kit' in the line. Only 1500 were produced (near as I can tell), so they're quite hard to come by. The $3k price doesn't help, either.

Oh. So it was a joke. Sorry. I thought you were for real.

So where do you store something like that?

I would have wanted Char's Zaku too if I could afford something like that.

To people who can afford and desire such a thing, questions like that are somewhat trivial.

I have the scratch to get one, and love Gundam, but there is a sanity level which I dare not cross. Cels are about as far as I am willing to go.
