Not-So-Daily Links of the Day: Visitors have posted multiple videos of the 18-meter-tall (59-foot-tall), "life-size" statue of the Gundam anime robot that is being completed at Tokyo's artificial Odaiba island. In addition, the Pink Tentacle blog has posted photographs of how the statue looks at night with many of its 50 lights on and its head unit in motion. The statue marks the 30th anniversary of the first anime series in the Mobile Suit Gundam space war anime franchise.
The statue will be officially on display for two months starting on July 11. It is built with fiberglass-reinforced plastic over a steel frame so it can be disassembled later. In addition to the 50 lights and moving head unit, the statue will feature mist-emitting devices on 14 points on the body.
