Japan's 18 meter high "Gundam" robot statue

You may remember our previous reports on Japan's 18 meter high "Gundam" robot erected in the centre of Tokyo and another giant robot currently being erected in Korea's robotic themepark "Robot Land".

Last month the giant Gundam statue was dismantled, but already this week another giant robot statue has been unveiled in Japan. The new statue is modelled after a manga featuring the giant robot Gigantor and adapted into several anime TV series in the 60s. While smaller than the two previous statues, at 18 meters tall and weighing more than 50 tons, Gigantor is still not to be taken lightly.
