News: Odaiba Gundam to move to Shizuoka

The 18 metre tall statue of the RX-78-2 Gundam, that was previously and very briefly displayed in Odaiba to commemorate Gundam’s 30th Anniversary, will be resurrected in Shizuoka outside the JR Higashi-Shizuoka Station. This means that if you’re riding on the Tokaido Shinkansen (between Tokyo and Nagoya), you’ll be able to see it from the comfort of your own seat on the train. There were plans to display the statue in Nagoya, as Nagoya TV helped fund the original TV series and movies, but it seems that deal fell through. The 1/1 scale Gundam will arrive in Shizuoka in July 2010 and be displayed until May 2011, then it will literally move down the road to the Bandai Hobby Centre. Anyway, it’s nice to know that this wonderful piece of Gundam memorabilia won’t end up on the scrap heap anytime soon.
