Well, it's finally fully-formed and the results may be more impressive than any single regularly-assembled Namco Bandai kit.As reported by Tomopop, the affectionately named "Recycle Grade Gundam" took more than 250 hours to build ov

Innumerable "Mobile Suit Gundam" fans have dreamed of making like series protagonist Amuro Ray and piloting Japan's (unfortunately strictly ornamental) scale replica of the RX-78-2, but given that the scenario isn't exactly in the cards, bidders on Japan's Yahoo! Auctions site settled for the next best thing on Monday and purchased three spare parts and three unused decals from the mech with the proceeds going to charity.According to Anime News Network, those who won the Mobile Suit swag raised a combined 4,001,000 yen (around $

gundamaugmentedrealityzaku

While Japan's achievements in the field of life-size fictional robot replicas are the standard by which the rest of the world gauges their artistic worth (at least, in my unhealthy, mecha-centric opinion), the nation seems to be setting a dangerous virtual reality precedent with a new augmented reality app that skips actual robo-buildage for mere simulation.

I don't think I'm alone in admitting that I've discarded my share of space-hogging phone docks due to a complete lack of practical or aesthetic use for them. My mind instantly changed, however, when I saw the upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam dock sporting a 1:100th scale Bandai "Gunpla" model kit

Giant Gundam Statue Recycles Model Kit Runners

gundamstatuerunners

When it comes to model kits, my love for Bandai's scores of Gundam toys really knows no bounds. They do have one weakness, though: waste. Unlike conventional action figures, the model kits leave behind some excess plastic in the form of "runners," which hold each model piece into place prior to assembly
