New Life-size Gundam Unicorn in Odaiba, Tokyo.

There’s a new Gundam in town and it’s even bigger than his predecessor! 19,7 meters high, the new and shiny Gundam Unicorn RX-0 from Mobile Suit Gundam UC (実物大ユニコーンガンダム立像) arrived the 24th of September this year after the older model, an RX-78-2 was removed. See it here.

As if being there rain or shine and looking awesome was not enough, it transforms to “Destroy Mode” a few times a day, to the excited aaaahs and oooohs of the (many) visitors. I must say that seeing the pieces move and assemble, and the suit fully lit up was really impressive. It literally looked like it was gonna start walking around! (I wish!)

As far as I know there are no plans of removing this new Gundam anytime soon. Showtimes are at 11h, 13h, 17h but when I was there there was an extra event going on at 19:30h. Unfortunately I didn’t attend that but the 17h show was perfect as it was night already so the lights really popped up.

Are you a Gundam fan?

Thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed my pictures and video!
