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.

    1. Same here. I remember when Gundam Wing was on Toonami. Actually that entire anime block of TV on Toonami was amazing. Dragon Ball Z, Toonami, Yugioh, Shaman King, Gundam Wing...And then later they did stuff like G Gundam, Gundam Seed, Evangelion, Yu yu Hakusho, Outlaw Star, etc.
