A Giant Gundam Statue Rip-Off Found in the Philippines?


Back in 2009 Japan built a life-size Gundam suit as part of Gundam's Series 30th anniversary. Based on what I have read recently, Japan plans to get the mobile suit upgraded and get moving by 2019 which is a pretty exciting thing to see in real life. I hope it will be able to fly too.

And then very recently a photo of a giant Gundam statue started emerging online and the origin of the said photo is the Philippines. A post on RocketNews42 said that the statue is found at Jed's Island Resort in Calumpit, Bulacan.

The image above is the comparison between Japan's official Gundam Suit (left [obviously : ) ]) and Jed's Island Resort version of the statue on the right. See that woman on the right photo? That's your scale for the actual size of the statue which is about the same size as the one on the left. So what can you say about it? You can share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Actually that is not the only attraction can be found at the said Pinoy resort, there are other statues that can be seen there together with some other life-size Disney characters such as the ones from Frozen, Big Hereo 6 and there are even other Anime characters like from One Piece, Voltes V and others.
