It seems that Bandai wants Linkin Park to be mashed up with another anime series (first being the countless of Linkin Park/DBZ music videos) as it seems that Japan will be getting a 30th Anniversary Gundam Plastic Model that was specially designed by the band. What’s the connection you ask? Well, it seems that the upcoming arcade game, Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs., will feature the song “The Catalyst,” that is from the bands new album. Of course, I’m sure some of you people will remember that in the “Somewhere I Belong” music video, it featured many Gundam plastic models.
Will the Gundam model come over stateside? Who knows but it’s been cool to see that Gundam has been getting some love from musicians, such as Andrew W.K. releasing a full Gundam anime cover album over in Japan. You think these type of things only work in Japan or do you think something like this will work in America?
