My thoughts and prayers go out to anyone affected by this disaster, especially my fellow gunplars. I hope you are all safe and well during this time of crisis. I keep following the new stories here in the states and it just gets getting more crazy to watch the footage of these things taking entire towns. Again, I really hope our community is safe and sound, gunpla is secondary to the human lives we must protect....that being said, it is still sad to see the following:
UPDATE #2: Yeah, the 1/1 RX-78-2 Gundam Statue at Shizouka has become a victim in this. I hope you get repaired and look good as new soon buddy! THIS WAS A FRAUD.1/1 Gundam at Shizouka still standing.
UPDATE #1: There seems to be some speculation now amongst the community that this has been photo-shopped, I examined the picture closer and there are key items here that may make that true, this has not been confirmed yet and I will keep on top of this story the best I can, if this was a joke by some cruel person, you should be ashamed of yourself for making light of a terrible tragedy and I don't mean the Gundam statue.
Just to give you some idea what happened here, I found a photo on MSNBC.com that really takes you back and realize how terrible this tsunami was:
Again, my thoughts and prayers are with anyone affected by this tragedy, Keep your Chins up, Newtypes.
