Gundam Fake Statue strikes back with changes

The orange statue with a striking resemblance to Sunrise's Gundam robotic mecha has reappeared with modifications in a photograph posted by a Twitter user named "otoutosama."
Floraland (Chengdu Guosetianxiang), an amusement park in the central Chinese province of Sichuan, had erected the statue last year, and then insisted that it was "not an imitation but an original [design]. It is not an copy of Gundam, but a design we came up with."

A public relations representative added last December, "Since there are reports of similarities, we are currently working on modifications." Days later, the statue was suddenly removed, and park officials denied the existence of the statue to the news agency Agence France-Presse.
The park's website also removed the image of the statue from one of its pages. via Animenewsnetwork
