Yahoo! Japan is currently holding an auction for someone to have his or her image projected from the cockpit section of the rebuilt life-size Gundam.

The auction, which opened on May 10 with a starting bid of 1 yen (US$0.01), currently has a bid of 509,000 yen (about US$6,372). The bid will end at 11:59 p.m. on May 16 in Japan.

The winning bidder will need to provide various images such as a full-body photograph, and photos from multiple angles of the face and hair. A digitally-rendered image will then be created of the winner and projected from the statue.

The winning amount will be donated to charity to aid the victims of last year’s earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan.

A video of an earlier test of the cockpit feature can be viewed below.
