Given how long it took to complete, I'm guessing "N.E.E.T." would be more accurate. Razz

Very, very cool.

Haha wow in some way this is more impressive than the life sized gundam. This is really cool, I wish I could buy it or make one of my own. Though I have a feeling that it would go to auction and would quickly reach bids far out of my price range. Also I feel like this picture really doesn't do the statue justice, I wish there was something next to it for comparison.

This is pretty crazy stuff they have there. We all want to be more green these days. What more better way than reusing the runners/sprues, reducing the amount of plastic that will go in landfills, and recycling it into a completely "new" and free model?

That is one awesome way to reuse and recycle!

My guess the builders asked around for extra parts.
