Japan Starts Work on Giant Robot #2


I don’t know why we didn’t see this coming. Just a few weeks after completing a 60-foot-tall Gundam in Odaiba that moves and has lights, Japan has started building a second giant robot — then one a replica of the classic robot Tetusjin-28, better known as Gigantor in America. So it’s going to be built in Kobe and it’s also going to be 60-feet tall, although it’s going to be a plain statue with no moving parts or ability to storm into North Korea and kick ass (supposedly). most terrifyingly, it’s going to be completed in August, when Japan will almost certainly announce that they just happen to be building a 60-foot-tall EVA Unit 01. And then we can all truly kiss our asses goodbye. (Via Japanator)
