Deck the halls with boughs of holly and plastic robot toys. On December, a Gundam Christmas 16-foot tree with over 60 Gundam models will go up in Tokyo's Akihabara.

Strung with red, white and blue lights, the tree is promoting upcoming PSP protbale title Gundam vs Gundam Next Plus. Voice actor Toru Furuya, who voices Gundam character Amuro Ray, will flip the switch to light up the lights on December 3. The first hundred who purchase Gundam vs. Gundam Next Plus get to have their photo taken with Furuya.

Man, people really get pumped about Gundam. I'd be pumped if the tree turned into a robot itself and took out half a city block with nukes...that would eb cool. But if it's just a tree...meh.
