It's 1:1 scale with the real thing, as a matter of fact. 64.6 feet (19.7 meters) tall, to be exact.

Despite its massive size, the statue's incredibly intricately detailed and covered in warning stickers.

The robot from manga and anime stands outside the DiverCity Mall, where you can find Bandai's hallmark Gundam store on the top floor.

The mall also has an awesome skate park on the roof, but that's a topic for another gallery.

Roughly every two hours, the Unicorn performs a show, with the white panels sliding apart and exposing the red interior for Destroy Mode.

Even if you're not a fan of Gundam, just standing near this massive bot is a breathtaking experience.

It's unclear how long the Unicorn will guard DiverCity mall, but given the popularity of the statue and the store it guards, it'll likely be staying for a while. Click through the rest of our gallery for more views of the giant robot.
