The life-sized RX-78 model robot at Gundam Factory in Yokohama, Japan on on Yamashita Pier is just about complete. It stands 59-feet-tall, weighs in at a massive 25-tons, and not only looks cool, but can also kneel, move its fingers, pointing its hands to the sky as well as take steps, albeit a bit slow, or at least compared to human standards. This amusement park of sorts was originally slated to open in time for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but the opening has been delayed indefinitely due to the pandemic.
