We've seen giant Gundam robots—real ones and totally fake ones. This isn't a Gundam robot, but it is giant. And it's a lantern. So burn, baby, burn.

Billed as the "Tallest Robot Lantern in the World", the 12 meter tall, 2.5 light up statue was shown in the city of Shuzhou, China.


In a perfect world, the Giant Gundam would battle the Chinese Gundam and the Giant Lantern Robot.
