Members of Japan's Liberal Democratic Party are apparently going to discuss the idea of building a real-life Gundam in an upcoming broadcast on Japanese video platform Nico Nico Live, tech site Kotaku.com reported.
"These politicians probably do not mean they want to make a 60-foot tall, 43.7 metric ton Gundam replica ... but instead, large mecha contraptions that could be used by, presumably, the country's Self Defense Force," Kotaku.com said.
According to the site, Tadamori Oshima and Bunmei Ibuki, members of Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic Party, are slated to discuss biped robots and now the LDP is "seriously considering the development of Gundam."
But it also pointed out that in an age of drone attacks - the Gundam franchise started in 1979 - mecha "don't exactly seem ideal on the battlefield."
