Unicorn Gundam

Statue in Odaiba & Tokyo Bay

Tokyo truly mourned when Odaiba's giant RX-78-2 Gundam sculpture was dismantled in spring 2017 – until fans of the series learned that an even larger (19.7m-tall!) RX-0 Unicorn Gundam would touch down in the fall. The newer model, from a more recent series, transforms four times a day (at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm) into 'destroy mode'; light shows take place on the half-hour between 7pm and 9.30pm. The statue is in front of the Diver City shopping mall.
