The staff then searched for the thieves who stole the heads of the wooden Gundam statues. The heads were found immediately through online! The heads were being showed off and auctioned it seems?
Chinese community was also comparing this incident to the stolen 1,500-year old Buddha head decades ago.
On a recent post by Bandai China. The incident did not actually happen, and the pictures taken were from fans and crews who to took down the statues after the event.
Though people in weibo still believes that the heads were stolen and Bandai's press release was just for public relations purposes.
Also, thanks to MASTER SPARKS for the additional information!
We are just glad they are safe!
