Giant Gundam Wedding: Speak now or forever hold your fire.
Welcome to the rebellion.
I have been remiss in my posting and have much catching up to do. Joe O'Brien over at my one-stop shop for sci-fi news and discussion, hardcorenerdity.com, reported weeks ago that construction on the giant Gundam robot in Odaiba that led to my Gundam World post, is now complete. And apparently it's open for weddings, bar mitzvahs, proms and graduation ceremonies.
The lucky couple here won out over 547 other entries in the Gundam wedding contest sponsored by the T & G (Take and Give) Wedding Planning Company. No word yet on whether the couple plan to spend their honeymoon in orbit or on the moon. But I suspect they were over the moon during this wild ceremony.
It's a not so well kept secret that giant robo here was a jackass at the free bar later... bragging to the robot brides maids about his hard drive and slurring euphemisms like RAM and fuel injection. Sad really.
More incredible photos of the finished Gundam can be seen at Shibuya 246's awesome photoblog.
