Everyday I find a new reason that living in Japan would be like living in Wonderland. The only thing stopping me from moving there is… I’m not really sure. Probably the language barrier. Maybe how many monsters they have that destroy their cities. It’s as bad as New York over there.
Because of said, giant monsters, they also have things like huge mechs to fight them off. Here’s one in real life.
This giant mecha was recently erected in Tokyo, Japan as part of a promotion for the new Patlabor movies. The life-sized AV-98 Ingram was first spotted in Yokohama but has now made its way to Tokyo’s Kichijoji.
Yes, it looks good, but it’s only about one-third as cool as I was hoping. It stands up and the lights flash but I was really expecting it to jump of the trailer and wave. Or at least turn its head or something.
Hit the jump for more shots and a couple videos.
