LOOK: Gundam teardown happening in Tokyo
Japan’s Gundam statue was every Gundam fanboy’s dream come true. But now, it’s time to bid it farewell as workers begin dismantling this monument to geekdom.
Twitter user @yoshi115t was at the site taking photos and uploading these to his feed, as workers tore down the statue piece by piece. The men kept the entire head intact as a crane lowered it to ground level.
Fret not because in its place will rise a new Gundam statue in the form of the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam. JB
