    I knew this would happen eventually. All the super nerds that grew up withall the old robot shows are old enough to invest and invent. It's only a matter of time till we read about someone in japan rampaging through tokyo in one of these. When anything rediculos and robot related happens it'll likely be in Japan.

    Hell yeah.

    Wonder if it'll have any features, like pop out soptlights or moving arms.
    Maybe give it a rifle and make it a guard dog in a high security area

    Sweet! Though, I'd have preferred the Mark II or, dare I even dream, Zeta Gundam. The RX-78 is cool and classic and all, but it's also kind of boring. The Mark II could combine with the G Defensor to form Super Gundam... and of course Zeta transformed into Waverider mode.

    Hmm... life sized 1:1 scale Zeta Unit 3... yeah baby...

    Awesome!

    On a side note: I stumbled upon Pittsburgh's Transformer a couple weeks ago. Got lost in Pittsburgh on the way to the Dane Cook show, and there it was. Smaller than I thought it would be.

    I think I read somewhere that its head will be able to move up, down, left and right, it will have about 40 lights and a couple of smoke generators.
