Best Christmas ever: Akihabara gets a Gundam tree


Screw setting up a Christmas tree, I want to have my very own Gundam tree waiting for me at Christmas. Sadly, my home is not Akihabara, so I'll have to just deal with dead leaves instead of spare sprues lying on my floor.

Well, according to Game Watch, starting December 3rd and running until the 25th, Bandai is setting up a 5-meter tall Christmas tree adorned with Gundam model kits in order to celebrate both the 30th Anniversary of Gundam and the upcoming release of Gundam vs. Gundam Next Plus.

And if you're one of the first 100 people to buy the game, then you'll be entered in a raffle to get your picture taken with Touru Furuya, the voice of Amuro Ray. I'm sure that'll only be if you buy the special edition, of course.
