Gigantor assumes his place as king amongst mecha-statues


Move over Gundham.  It took $1.5 million to complete the so-called Kobe Tetsujin Project [JP], with the money coming from the city of Kobe, a handful of corporations and individual Gigantor fans, but now the city can lay claim to the tallest mecha-statue in Japan. 

The statue weighs an impressive 50 tons and stands at 18 meters (59.058 ft.).  For those scratching their heads, the statue is based on the giant robot from the 1960’s anime.
