The giant Gundam in Tokyo's Odaiba might be long gone, but our memories of it live on and on. Know: It was by no means the first giant Gundam. There have been others, oh yes.

In the gallery, there are several big mechas: the totally unofficial 1/3 scale "Zeta III" in Okayama prefecture, some short-term Gundam thing created for a vocational school, a Gundam-ish mecha at an Osaka intersection and some sort of we-don't-know-what-the-fuck found in a schoolyard.
