Gundam Casualties in Japan Earthquake

Japan suffered a strong magnitude-6.5 earthquake today morning.

Happened off the coast of Hachijo. There's no immediate report of death and injury so far, and there's no danger of tsunami due to the earthquake as well.

But as 2Chan forumers revealed, some folks' Gundam collection weren't so lucky though.


"This morning's earthquake has wiped out all the plamo did for five years".

Ouch! >.<

The earthquake also hit Bandai Hobby Center at Shizuoka, causing many Gunplas at the center to fell. Molding machines were halted temporally and the water tank cracked. Recovery work is currently being carried out at the center.

Luckily, no personnel were injured during the event.

This is the first earthquake experienced at Bandai Hobby Center since its operation started in 2006.
