Leg part, really big

There is a light works and some steam works in this statue, the eye,booster,beam saber,shoulder parts have a light works, and the chest or any other vent will produce steam to look like a hot steam from the engine.
The head can move left and right and up, oh…and some sound effect from the original anime too.

Light works on the eyes and steam coming out from chest and leg vent

Booster and backpack light works

The Real Grade RX-78-2 Gundam take panel line and color separation from this real scale gundam *or maybe the other way, i don’t remember which one is that.
This statue span about 18 meters and if the Gundam from the anime comes to life, this is the right scale of it
