Gundam Statue Rises Again (Almost)

 |  |  |  |  |  |  June 22, 2010


I was pretty sad when they announced plans to take down the 60-foot Gundam statue that was erected last year in Tokyo. Luckily, Bandai recently announced that they were going to put it up again in Shizuoka, 125 miles west of Tokyo. He’s almost ready! Here are some of the first pictures available from the new location.

Giant Gundam holds a beam saber in his right hand, which will start to glow when it gets dark. The only thing that would be more impressive would be if it could actually move around. Maybe next year.

The enormous Gundam statue will be on display from July 24th, 2010, to January 10th, 2011, in East Shizuoka Square. Now that’s good news indeed. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to go to Japan to check him out, so like most of you, I’ll have to admire him from afar. Bandai, it’s time for a giant Gundam worldwide tour!
