RX-78-2 Gundam says goodbye on March 5th 2017. Sadly, it has to retire from its position but no worries! A new life-size statue will debut this fall. The new statue will be the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam from the Mobile Suit Gundam UC OVA and Anime series.

  1. So the RX-78-2 Gundam is leaving Gundam Front Tokyo & being replaced by the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam? That is quite impressive; especially considering the size difference will be huge.

    The RX-78-2 Gundam is 18.5 meters (60.69554 feet).
    The RX-0 Unicorn Gundam is 21.7 meters in Destroy Mode (71.19423 feet).

    Considering that this statue is a 1:1 representation, that'd be roughly a difference of 3.2 meters (10.5 feet).

    I wonder if they're going to totally rebuild it or reuse some parts and modify it for the differences in design and height.

  2. Out with the old I guess.. I dunno RX-78 is more iconic. I don't enjoy the Unicorn Gundam's design much.

    But I guess it makes sense. I doubt new watchers are exactly going that far back for their Gundam viewing experience. I started with Wing on Toonami myself.
