Thanks to +Kielko Suzuko18M Gundam Statue (real-life size) to be dismantled
Bandai announced that they will dismanted the Gundam Statue
and the Gundam Front (museum)
. This really too bad. Gundam has always been a huge part of the popculture, and the statue attracts a lot of tourist.
On March 5, 2017, you can see the statue for the last time. So go out and make a lot of pictures and videos. If you can't make it, you can always check-out my video I made recently.Background information
The statue has stood outside the DiverCity Tokyo mall in Odaiba, Tokyo since 2012. The "Tokyo Gundam Project," which aims to revitalize Tokyo's waterfront area through initiatives with the Tokyo government, will also temporarily end.
The statue was unveiled at Odaiba's Shiokaze Park in 2009, where it stood for 52 days. 4.15 million people visited the statue. The statue was then relocated to Shizuoka City in 2010, where it stood from July 2010 to March 2011, this time holding a beam saber in its right hand. In 2012, the statue was dismantled and rebuilt at its current location, where it has stood since.#gundam #gundamstatue #divercity #tokyo #japan #japanculture #photography #worldtravel #wanderlust #travelgram #travel #popculture
