Gigantor Is Slightly Giant-er Than I Remember

Just in time for the dismantling of the 60-foot Gundam statue, the 60-foot Gigantor statue has been completed in Kobe, Japan, where he's better known as Tetsujin-28. Kobe's gone fuck-all-crazy over the classic anime robot; if you watch the entirety of the news report above (and really, you don't have to), everything in the goddamn city is decorated with Tetsujin's pointy-nosed face. Admittedly, unlike the Gundam, Gigantor doesn't have any moving parts or lights or steam, but you know what? The Gundam didn't have all the street lights in Tokyo remodeled to look like his fucking head, either. Advantage: Gigantor.
