You still haven't had enough of life-size giant robot statues, says this life-size giant robot statue
The work on Kobe's planned life-sized Tetsujin 28-go statue is proceeding nicely, as you can see in the news update above, which is cued to some badass old-timey robot show music. The official unveiling seems to have been pushed back to October, but giant legs are already on-site, with the head in the workshop getting polished up. Better yet, this statue of Gigantor (Tetsujin's American name) strikes a more dynamic pose than the life-sized Odaiba Gundam.
This is great. All major metropolitan areas should have their own life-sized giant robot statue, and not just in Japan. It need not be limited just to robots, either. Any pop-cultural sci-fi figure will do. Take San Francisco, for example. Being the home of Lucasarts, they could have a life-sized model of an Imperial Star Destroyer sitting in the middle of Golden Gate Park.
