A Robot Grows in Tokyo

The life-size sculpture is an advertisement for a new theme park.

Last month, fans of the popular animated television series Mobile Suit Gundam got a giant treat, in the form of a theme park. Now, they have something new to visit - a full-size model of Japan's robot animation character Gundam in front of a shopping mall. The 64-foot-tall Gundam was installed to promote "Gundam Front Tokyo."
