The Gundam Statue in Tokyo Japan is Majestic

An 18 meter-tall Gundam statue now lives in Diver City Tokyo, Odaiba, Tokyo, Japan and it's pretty badass if you ask me.

The giant statue is modeled after the popular anime series Gundam Wing and features the Gundam mobile suit. The statue was built to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the animated series. The statue is a 1:1 model and has been visited over 4.15 million times. The statue is not permanent however; it has moved from Shizuoka City in the past and now resides in Tokyo.

There is something majestic and almost haunting about the photographs of the statue -- something about the way it seems to loom over the city like a super hero protecting the defenceless.
