Tokyo's life-size Gundam greets winter with a new light show

Forget the lights, the tree and even the snow -- it doesn't truly feel like the holidays until you've illuminated your 59-foot Gundam.

Gundam Front Tokyo in the city's Odaiba section has welcomed the winter season with a new projection mapping presentation that gives the massive life-size RX-78-2 Gundam a dazzling light-filled makeover.

In the video below, The Japan Times explains this presentation is more "artistic" than previous versions, and employs the entire statue as a projection screen. And as you can hear, there's also music, some of it from the Gundam movie.

The four-minute presentation takes place every hour, between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., through Feb. 14. Don't become too entranced by the display, though: If it begins to move, run.
