Late last year a Chinese theme park caused quite a stir when it revealed a 15 meter tall statue that aped Japan’s favorite giant robot. The phony Gundam statue was torn down after much unwanted publicity, and has since been replaced with a modified version. The new statue probably won’t infringe on anyone’s copyrights, but may offend for entirely different reasons. That said, based on the comments left on twitter it appears to be evoking more laughter than anger, so I guess this story has a happy ending?
