The Life-Sized Unicorn Gundam Statue will be in the Rinkai Fukutoshin (Tokyo Water Front) area. Its transformation from Unicorn Mode to Destroy Mode will be recreated as accurately as possible during its staging at night. The fact that you can see a realistic statue through gimmicks such as the opening and closing of its horn, changing head modes, and the expansion of its shoulder, waist, and knee parts is its greatest feature. New decals by mechanic designer Hajime Katoki have also been added.
A video collaboration that will be projected on the wall with the statue is scheduled to be conducted by the popular production company Wall-G following its grand opening. Furthermore, the GUNDAM TRAILER SHOP, a trailer-type shop that will carry products related to Gundam, will open the same day at Festival Plaza.
