Spare 1/1 Gundam Parts Auctioned for Charity
The 1/1 Gundam loves us and keeps giving and giving. According to news sent along from Angry Zen Minion Megan Rohm
and AZM Ally deepfreeze, spare parts from the life-scale Gundam were auctioned off from August 16-23 to benefit the Japan Committee “Vaccines for the World’s Children.” The initial auction raised ¥4,001,000 (about $46,900 USD). A second sets of parts will go to auction on September 13.
Honestly, I’m not so sure I’d want a piece of 1/1 Gundam Groin. I mean, I realize that without Gundam Groin, Gundam no walky. But I’d much rather go for a fin from the helmet or an vulcan cannon or a piece of thumb or something. Still, I think it’s pretty cool that the 1/1 Gundam loves us enough to save Shinjuku from colony drops and raise money to save the children of the world.
