    They threw away his Gundams?!

    If they were from SEED, I'd have to call him stupid... But these were based off of the original Mobile Suit Gundam!


    He had every right.

    for one, hikkikomori's have nothing to do with this. Hikkikomori's are stuck inside, don't want to or have a fear of going outside. its not implied anywhere the guy is a hikki, just an otaku.

    Secondly, it doesn't happen often, you have otaku's leaving their obsession behind and destroying all their merchandise/collectibles but never actually something they get taken to court for.

    Lol. If he wanted to die with them, he should stayed in the house when it was burning.

    People seriously get too obsessed or "clingy" with things, and freak out if anything happens to them. It's like the show Hoarders.

    Also, he could've prevented that problem if he didn't still live with his mom (Who had every right to throw them away, as it's her house) at the age of 30. If he has enough money to buy all of these Gundam models, I'm sure he could survive on his own.

    Wow, those things could have probably been worth tons of money.

    I would have hung her head on a pike.

    Fuck...I don't know how much time I wasted putting gundam models together as a kid. I had a few imported from Japan too.

    sankaku isn't a reliable source of info bro. while they are somewhat accurate, they often report fairly old news.

    there haven't been any major incidents involving hikki's/recluses since the guy killing his parents back in april. this news is also in fact quite old (late last year sometime i believe) however has been brought up towards the end of the court hearing.

    Title is wrong... gundams are not toys they are models... theres a huge difference namely the damn price [​IMG] . These things cost like 20-60 dollars and the older ones are obviously worth more, if on average a box contains only one gundam and its 300... 50 dollars average each it be like 15 thousand dollars.... Now its an estimate but seriously its not just some dumb toys. This is like the american equivalent of your crazy ass girlfriend destroying a priceless classic car, anybody goes nuts when their most valuable possession gets trashed.

    Don't forgot cost of materials and time spent if he actually paints/mods his kits.
    Gundam/mecha model building can be one heck of an expensive hobby.
