It has been officially announced, the Giant RX-78 Gundam Statue/Model will make a comeback this year, but this time it will be located in Shizuoka City, 125 miles west of Tokyo. A Bandai spokesperson said Gundam will come to life once more in June, at the East Higashi-Shizuoka Station, near the local Bandai factory in which there is a guided tour (with previous reservation) that could complete your itinerary if you decide to make the trip to Shizuoka.
Originally this incredible real scale statue was erected in Tokyo's artificial island Odaiba, to commemorate the 30th aniversary of Mobile Suit Gundam. The statue was dismantled last September, but it was so successful (4 million visitors aprox.) that the people from Bandai decided to bring it back to life again.
In the spring of 2010 Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn/Mobile Suit Gundam UC will be launched as a six-episode original video series, with each episode running 50 minutes. This multi-platform "crossover" release will encompass various possibilities such as Blu-ray, DVD, public screenings, online distribution, and overseas releases.
