Giant Robots Taking Over Japan
« on: July 19, 2009, 12:59:02 PM »

GUNDAM

Or the soon to be completed

Tetsujin 28-go (Ironman No. 28)

A ¥135 million project is under way in Kobe to create a life-size model of Tetsujin 28-go (Ironman No. 28), a popular robot "manga" character from the 1950s, as a symbol of the city's recovery from the 1995 Great Hanshin Earthquake.
The 18-meter, 50-ton statute will be erected in September in Wakamatsu Koen Park in Nagata Ward, one of the areas hit hardest by the quake that killed more than 6,000 local residents.

2nd one. I find robots with heft more appealing. Nothing like the retro cold war era feel.

The Gundam one is pretty damn impressive, and it brings us one step closer to having one that's fully functional.  I'd totally join any military that had one of those.

Tetsujin looks a lot cooler than the Gundam.

Tetsujin because Gundams look too much like Transformers.

For anyone that didn't know yet. The Gundam 1/1 which was at Odaiba will be shown in Shizuoka starting this July.
You can see it in the re-assembling stage here at:
gundam.info

Eva also have a 1/1 bust that'll be at Fuji-Q Highland end of July too:

oh, and I voted Gundam :cow:

Voted for Gundam, IIRC they want the 1/1 Gundam to be as iconic as Mt.Fuji itself. I just can't remember where i have read it.
