Question for Dopers in Osaka

The big dinosaur near Amerikamura was a navigational point for me to get to Midosuji train line (particularly when drinking) when I lived in Osaka 1996-7.

I returned two years ago for a short holiday and it was gone.

When did it get torn down and what happened to it?

(Thank God the giant robot crab is still in Shinsaibashimachi.)
