Comment now!

If you’ve been here for a while you know that Dark Diamond <3 giant robots. There’s just something undeniably cool about a massive metal humanoid. Japan currently has the coolest one, but its just about to outdo itself!

Koba City’s Nagata Ward wants to celebrate their recovery from the great earthquake of 1995 and so they plan to honor one of their local heroes, Tetsujin 28, otherwise known as Gigantor. The city plans to erect a 18 meter tall statue of the robot, that’s as tall as a 5 story building. Its going to cost them a pretty penny as well, the project is budgeted at 135 million Yen, which is about 1.1 million US Dollars.

They are currently collecting donations in Taxi cabs and other places, no news yet on when this is set to be completed or even started. But whenever its done, and there are pics online, dont doubt that we’ll be here to tell you all about it.
