Known as the land of manga and anime, Japan has recently built a life-sized, moving RX-78-2 Gundam, but the nation has decided that it’s not going to stop there. Turning to another beloved character of massive proportions, it was announced near the end of last year that a life-sized Godzilla statue would be constructed on Awaji Island of the Hyogo Prefecture in Japan.

Originally scheduled to open this summer, construction was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but new photographs that have surfaced show that progress has been steady, with the giant lizard king coming together nicely. When fully built, the massive statue will span over 390 feet long, proving to be a worthy opponent against the Gundam itself.

There’s currently no new opening date yet for the attraction, but you can take a closer look in the gallery above during the wait.

Elsewhere in design, LEGO is releasing a Batwing set from Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman film.
