For some time the man-made island of Odaiba in Tokyo, Japan has been home to a life-size Unicorn Gundam, but now there's a new bot in town. A life size Bumblebee standing nearly 12 feet tall and weighing in at nearly 1,900lbs is standing just steps away (literally steps, it's positioned on a set of stairs) from the famous Gundam to promote the Bumblebee movie which hits Japanese theaters on March 22. It's a very life-like statue as it gazes across the Festival Square.

And thanks to some Japanese fans on Twitter we have several photos to share!

Let's see, will I be buying a film that I love, belonging to one of may favorite franchises of all time, starring my favorite character, who turns into my favorite car, co-incidentally the reason I love Bumblebee in the first place?;
Scrap Yeah!

This artwork makes it look like the Decepticons and Bee are fighting together but I'll probably pic this up since i think the US Steel Book look lame. - unless i could get the ITALY STEEL BOOK. That version look sweet.

Undecided. I'm hesitant and unsure why, so I'll hold off for now.

As an aside, that Gundam statue looks amazing :BOWDOWN:

It also makes it looks like the standard DVD version has no Decepticons :lol: , man the quality of standard DVD really is getting bad

I believe that is the Unicorn Gundam in it's hyper mode, though I cold be wrong, also I think that statue was featured in Pacific Rim Uprising...

Which, of course, I completely misread initially as Unicron Gundam... which really did confuse me when I saw the picture :lol:

Actually, the Unicorn Gundam Statue can convert between normal and super modes. It's really cool. ;)^

And I think that was the same Gundam in Pacific Rim 2, but I have to check to be sure. I am positive it is a Unicorn Gundam statue though

Spain has a forty foot Mazinger Z statue (I know you're on about the states but I felt it was a good bit of triva to drop)

I wish Quebec had a giant Grandizer statue, he is our most beloved robot.

Vive Goldorak! :lol: . But yeah, that is cool....Seems like Super/Real Robots get plenty of well deserved love the world over, except in the US....Sure we had a 20( something) foot tall Optimus Prime statue traveling around conventions for a time...but still...If it wasn't half way around the world, I'd love to see that Mazinger statue, for sure.

The UK doesn't fare well in that front either, best we have is a metal Martian tripod structure commentating where the first Martian cylinder fell in the War of the Worlds book. I guess maybe it's a culture thing as obviously in Japan's case, that's the second gundam statue (bet its not the last either)

Nope, definitely not the last Gundam statue. They are already making a new one based on the RX-78-02 Gundam (My favorite btw). The new one will probably have moving arms too

What's this? A live action Transformers movie that actually includes the deleted/cut-out scenes of the movie as bonus content on its home media releases, rather than withholding such extra footage from ever seeing a full public release? Madness! 8-}
