Gundam Returneth

That's right, the 1:1 Gundam statue which stood in Odiaba last year will return later this summer in a small town of Shizuoka. Shizoukoa is like the Detroit of plastic model kits... It makes sense that Bandai would choose the Shizuoka as the Mecca to the Gundam's Kaaba. At a days train ride from Tokyo I'm guessing that Shizuoka will be get quite the bump in Tourism this summer. Alas though it will again be a temporary engagement, it seems the statue just isn't built for year-round display.
