Add in remote robotics, functioning missiles,jets, random weapons and rebuild it and use it to take over the world.


Don't forget the Beam Rifle, beam sabers, beam javelin and the Gundam Hammer. But, I don't think we've discovered the Minovsky particles yet. D:


As far as you know. xD

It was only ever going to be there for a short while, it was for the anniversary after all.

I think they're reassembling it in the Gundam museum though. What else would they do with all those parts?

i can't see how it could possibly be dissassemled permanently... it draws enough interest that plenty of businesses would pay to have it as an attraction.

Effed, I really wanted to see that and I'm not visiting Japan until next August, but I really hope that they do put it back together again somewhere.

It'd be great if it stayed there... Even more people are gonna go see it next time it's put out I bet. I'd be awesome to see it live lol

I get the feeling that they are going to assemble it again next year for the 31st Gundam Anniversary.
