In 2012, the statue was dismantled and rebuilt at its current location, where it has stood since.

The statue could embark on a world tour! Imagine how much of our fleeting disposable income would go Bandai's way if it were to make special appearances at our local conventions!

(Admittedly it wouldn't be much, but one can dream.)

Nooooooo, I'm going back in April. Sad
This is the worst news of 2016 so far!

Here are some pictures I took from the statue, cafe, and experience when I was there with my friends back in October. It was pretty cool, and I'm not even interested in Gundam. It was one of my other friends that wanted to go.

Wow, nice pictures!

Seems like when you went, it was pretty quiet. It was crowded both times I went there, although there was a concert going on one of the times.

I'm glad I got pictures of it when I was there in 2013 but now I'm wishing I had visited it again when I was there earlier this year.

I'd love to get to a multi-artist Gundam concert.
