The Latest Thing to Drool Over...

I'm a geek. I know it. I don't feel any shame, but I do have to fight the urge to make somewhat... random purchases of those things which tickle that inner magpie which lurks in the hearts of all Otaku.

And that magpie nature works for traditional geeks such as myself to those whose geek-dom involves things such as sports. After all, we have NASCAR ornaments for the Christmas tree right next to the Star Wars ones, thanks to my Beloved Wife's inner Otaku in relation to some blue and silver race car.

So, it's not that big of a surprise that I saw this pretty thing run across my RSS Reader and commenced drooling. After all it's a 1/350th scale reproduction of the Space Battleship Yamato. I mean, how utterly cool and awesome is that?!?!

And it even comes with light-up engines (via a remote control no less!), and a number of the space battle planes that were used in the anime.

Over all, I have to say that the Yamato is one of the coolest space ship designs (if not necessarily the most practical).
