Japan breaks down, will finally start building giant robots. For reals.

I think that I can speak for the rest of the world on this: we were wondering when you guys were gonna go ahead and just do it, already.

A team of Japanese animators and engineers on Wednesday unveiled plans to build a moving 18-metre (60-foot) tall Gundam robot, in a nod to millions of science fiction fans.

I hope that it’s understood, of course, that I am totally behind Japan building giant robots. This can be their thing. It’s an awesome thing. It’s all cool.
