The world has seen enormous life-sized Gundam statues. You know what it is missing?


An enormous 1/1 scale Evangelion bust. Evas are the huge biomechanical beings piloted in the hugely successful franchise Neon Genesis Evangelion. On July 23, Fuji-Q HighLand amusement park in Japan will open a new attraction: "Evangelion: World - Life-Size EVA-01 Construction Project".

According to website ANN, this exhibit will recreate the scene in which Evangelion character Shinji Ikari meets Eva-01 unit for the first time. Eva-01 will be life-sized, but only built from the bust up.

In 2007, the Fuji-Q HighLand, which is located at the foot of Mt. Fuji, opened a pavilion featuring a life-sized Gundam.

I love Evangelion, but I'm confused by all the hype that still surrounds it. I mean come on, the show's pretty old.
