Gundam Statue Comes Down as I Hit Japan Running

My cousin used to be completely obsessed with everything anime, but Gundam was one of his favorite shows. So I thought it totally appropriate to share these images of the 60-foot Gundam statue with you now since I'm heading to Japan this week! I'm crossing the Pacific to check out the Tokyo Game Show, as well as take in all the sights, sounds, and gadgets there are to be seen in the country that brought us ramen and Godzilla.

The Gundam statue was erected to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the famous anime in the man-made island of Odaiba, just outside of Tokyo. Although I won't be able to see the statue (its deconstruction should already be underway — or is it?), but stay tuned, because I'll be bringing you images from the massive Tokyo Game Show and all the tech goodies I can find!
