Tetsujin in Japan

At 60 feet tall and weighing in at 50 tons the Japanese will be building another robot. Tetsujin or Gigantor as some may know him will be built by October of this year. I just hope they don’t take down this robot, I hope this trend continues in Japan that all the parks will have a monument of a Giant robot built in it, everyone knew the Japanese would be the first to build robot warriors and this is the first step forward.

Gundam Fix Metal Composite MSZ-006A1/C! Z plus[Red]

I started with the red one since I have been watching the last Gundam series and it got me worked up. It turns out this figure can have about four different variations, two are robots and two are planes, and it gets pretty complicated.

I unpacked the boxes, kept everything its place but spread around me on the floor. The instructions are in Japanese but its pretty clear from the pictures, but sometimes I had a hard time trying to figure out how exactly they stayed in place. I didn’t go for the plane version of the Gundam I’m thinking of doing that for the other one, with the Robot version you have a lot of options. The bigger robot version looks damn cool but the normal version looks great as well, so I went halfway and beefed up the normal version a bit. Didn’t take too long, one hour and a bit of sitting on the floor and tinkering with it and all the different pieces and I have my Gundam put together.

Now to find a place for it, after searching around I decided to put it in the location of the evil Mazinger and move that next to my other Mazinger Z figures. Right now its sitting next to my Sonos Speaker and looks pretty good. I really have to reorganize the items I have in my room, too many things piled up.
