Even though I am not an anime fan, neither a transformer's fan, I admit that I find this robot-statue fascinating.
I went on an internet search wondering if there are any other giant robot statues around the world.
Well not quite, but in Japan they already are in the process of making a second one.
It's name is "Iron Man 28" or "Gigantor", it will be 18 meter height and will be placed at Kobe’s Wakamatsu Park.
