According to Bandai Namco's recently released financial statements for the fiscal year ending on March 31, 2012, sales for the Gundam franchise grew from 38.2 billion yen (about US$479 million) in the previous year to 44.7 billion yen (US$560 million). Sales of Gundam toys and hobby kits in particular grew from 13.4 billion yen (about US$168 million) to 15.6 billion yen (about US$196 million) as well.

The company projects that for the next financial year, sales for the Gundam series overall will increase to 47 billion yen (US$590 million), but that toy and model sales for the series will drop to 15 billion yen (US$188 million).

WTF News: Detective Conan Statue's Magnifying Glass Stolen
Police in Hokuei, the hometown of Detective Conan manga creator Gosho Aoyama, are investigating the defacing of two bronze statues of the pint-sized detective this week. On Monday morning, a male passerby discovered that the magnifying glass was missing from one of the 60-centimeter-tall (about 2-foot tall) statues, while the snorkel pipe on the other statue was bent.

It will cost an estimated 500,000 yen (US$6,000) to repair the damage. There were nine similar instances of defacement between 2000 and 2007, and it cost 3.5 million yen (US$44,000) to repair the damage for those incidents.

The town in Tottori Prefecture erected the statues on both ends of its Conan Bridge in honor of its most famous citizen. The town opened the nearby Gosho Aoyama Manga Factory museum in 2007.
