The 1:1 monster RX-78-2 Gundam formerly menacing Tokyo has been re-erected in Shizuoka with upgraded armament. Below the animatronic statue can be seen in detail, as ever striking a particularly impressive figure against the night sky.

Its move to Shizuoka sees it occupy a central spot just to the north of Shizuoka Station, with the installation set to last from now until the conclusion of the Shizuoka Hobby Fair at the end of March, 2011, leaving plenty of time for pilgrimages.

The upgraded beam sabre glows at night and shimmers in the sun during the day, making for an impressive sight – otherwise the display is substantially the same.
