How accurate is this news? Well, I guess having an actual official announcement would help. But the fact that the article was published at a well established news site in Macau is indeed exciting to know.Macau (Chinese: 澳門), also spelled Macao ( /məˈkaʊ/), is one of the two special administrative regions of the People's Republic of China, the other being Hong Kong. Macau lies on the western side of the Pearl River Delta across from Hong Kong to the east, bordering Guangdong province to the north and facing the South China Sea to the east and south. The territory's economy is heavily dependent on gambling and tourism, but also includes manufacturing.

A writer had previously written an article stating that Bandai was going to release the Soul of Chogokin GX049 God Mars (Released byBandai in 2008). But at the time, due to the absence of an official announcement, readers posted the article on a Hong Kong toy forum and ridicule the writer. Afterwards, the news proved to be true.. Bandai released the Soul of Chogokin GX049 God Mars, but no one has yet to apologize to this writer.
This time, the writer has written about the 1:1 scale RX-78-2 Gundam Statue to be build & display in Macau, and folks no longer need to view this attraction just in Odaiba, Japan. This plan was proposed by the Macau gaming company. Build price will be well over a billion Macanese pataca (more than $12,500,000 US Dollars). Japan (Bandai) have already given their go ahead on this project. It is believe that the statue would be built in the Cotai area in Macau. Gundam fans can go everyday to view this attraction. As for the enthusiasts, you may share this news, but only with good intention...
