Tokyo’s 6-Storey Gundam Robot!

leave a comment »

As a child of the Voltes V generation, this is the closest to the real thing for me. It’s a 1:1 replica of a Gundam robot, at 59 feet (18 meters) tall, weighing 25 tons! This is pure robot nirvana! (Japan – 1, US – 0; sorry Roomba, you’re just a cowchip with a chip. And oh, R2D2 was a dwarf actor in tin costume… how lame!) ‘Nuff said.

I find the Twitter trending topic #robotpickuplines anthropomorphically hilarious. What’s next, the coming out of C3PO ? Here’s a sampling :

“Hey there, my name’s Vista. Can I crash at your place tonight?”

“My bolts are getting loose…would you mind screwing me?”

“Holy shift! Check out the asymptote on that mother function!”

“Hey Baby…. my name is McAfee, I am virus free and I carry protection.”

“You’re the only bookmark in my browser.”


“I want to grow obsolete with you.”
