America and Japan to Stage Giant Robot Battle for Real [Video]
This is the coolest news all day! Recently, America challenged Japan to a giant robot battle, since both countries have companies that have built massive robots. What else would you do with a giant Megabot? Have them fight, of course!
Where's Hugh Jackman when we need him?
Recently, American robot maker Megabots, Inc. challenged Japanese robot maker Suidobashi to a battle of giant robots. This is not the beginning of the new Michael Bay movie, this s*** is REAL!
"Suidobashi. You have a giant robot, we have a giant robot. You know what needs to happen."
The builder of the giant Japanese Megabot, Kogoro Kurata of Suidobashi, is not only down with the challenge, but throws out the idea of Japanese Robot Superiority:
"Yeah, I'll fight. Absolutely. We can't let another country win this. Giant robots are Japanese culture."
The robots look like what each culture typically thinks of when it thinks of a mega-robot...the American one looks like something from Metal Gear, and the Japanese one looks like something from Gundam, or Robotech, or something.
Who's got the better bot? Who will win the fight?
Will Michael Buffer be in the ring to yell, "Let's get ready to..." wait, I can't say that here, I'll get sued. You know what he does.
