About Unicorn Gundam Statue

Outside DiverCity Tokyo Plaza, the Unicorn Gundam Statue is a modern symbol of the animation and science fiction culture in Japan. Unveiled in 2017 to replace the earlier RX-78-2 Gundam model, it represents the enduring popularity of the Gundam franchise. The RX-0 Unicorn Gundam stands as a contemporary monument and reflects the innovative spirit prevalent in Japanese media.

The statue impresses onlookers with its ability to switch between ‘Unicorn Mode’, with a single horn, and ‘Destroy Mode’, where it reveals additional panels and lights. This transformation is scheduled throughout the day and demonstrates a blend of mechanical precision and the imaginative aspects of the Gundam world. While the statue does not move autonomously, its mode change is a technical feat that echoes the Gundam series’ narrative depth.

The Unicorn Gundam is especially striking in the evening when ‘Destroy Mode’ is accentuated by lighting effects. Visitors can also enjoy Gundam theme music in the vicinity, contributing to the atmosphere. This setting allows fans to celebrate the Gundam series’ cultural impact.

The Unicorn Gundam Statue gives visitors a chance to admire its design and transformation process, mirroring the craftsmanship in anime production. It stands as a symbol of the Gundam series’ cultural and historical importance in Japan, and its significant role in shaping global pop culture. The statue is a notable sight for anyone exploring Odaiba’s attractions.
