First, our thoughts go out to all those affected by the earthquake.  The photo below quickly spread through online geekdom as evidence the giant Gundam statue was damaged in the quake.  The problem is the photo is from 2009.

By the looks of the picture the green robot probably knocked it over by the way it’s walking away from the scene.

This photo was taken on July 14, 2009 using a Canon EOS 20D.
