Gundam down! GUNDAM DOWN!

The Tokyo’s 1/1 scale Gundam in Odaiba seems to be sleeping on the job again…

  2. So, what happened?

    I visited it with the family just one month ago, and it was all OK.

    Will they remove it?

  3. Just passed by it today, standing as usual.

    When I saw this on twitter today, I just had to check “ガンダム お台場” on Google News, etc. Nip, Null, nothing.
    I should’ve known that all the news stations, even NHK, would be covering “Gundam Down” event on live TV. :confused:

    (The Photoshop is good, but the blue sky in photo is a dead giveaway since Tokyo has been overcast all day.)

    There has been no announcement of the closing of the Gundam Front museum, Gundam Café, and Gundam hotel suites, which seem to be continuing their operations at DiverCity complex after the March 5 removal of the statue. Maybe Bandai Corp. is planning the rumoured upgrade to a moving colossus for 40th anniversary of Gundam in 2019.
