The new Best Thing Ever? Tetsujin-28 street lamps
If it wasn't badass enough that Kobe was building its own giant robot statue, this time replicating the awe-inspiring visage of Tetsujin-28 (aka Gigantor), the city has seen fit to strike home the idea of just who is protecting the people from harm, by giving their street lamps a mighty robo makeover.
Five street lamps outside the Shin-Nagata train station have had their covers made more awesome, redone to represent the massive robot's own head. Just look at the detail in it! They've even cut out extra holes to make its eyes glow!
That's it, I've made my decision. This giant robot statue is superior to the Odaiba Gundam. Why? Not only is it just as large, it also strikes a more dynamic, freedom-loving pose, and is, above all, permanent. The next time I visit Japan, I fully intend to stop by, just to remind myself exactly why I occasionally call the place Glorious Nippon.
