On June 30, MegaBots Inc. (USA) challenged Suidobashi Heavy Industries (Japan) to a giant robot fight.

On July 5, Suidobashi accepted the challenge.

What a time to be alive. Hopefully in the future these becomes a worldwide thing with countries from around the world building giant robots to fight one another. The merchandising and sponsoring opportunities for this kind of thing would probably make it crazy lucrative.

Who will you be rooting for?

Well let's just hope no one makes any jokes about whoever wins and loses, because that would be an outrage.

I hope our robot's not going by the Evangelion timeline, because America didn't exactly have a stellar record with EVAs in that show (well Unit-03 wasn't our fault, but Unit-04 just fucking blew up)

But fuuuuuuck if this means we're one step closer to the glorious (but kinda racist) future that is G Gundam!!

That's really cool, just kinda sad it's going to take another year. (I know it's necessary to prepare, but still.)

Also someone should take the opportunity and make a new Mech Warrior now.

The Suidobashi CEO described America's robot as, well, "Super-American". and he couldn't be more correct. It's pretty gaudy.

The Japanese team has "Heavy Industries" in the name. They have already won.

Like all good prize fights, this match will be more worked than WWE.

You can't let competition get in the way of putting on a great show.

I saw that MegaBots machine in action at Makerfaire. It's a pretty cool sight to see it standing up.

I love the pro wrestling answer by Suidobashi. This sounds dangerous (if they don't use remote control) but fantastic. If they do go remote, bring on the rail guns and giant swords.

One step closer to Robot Jox. Greece should pool all their money on something to face Mecha Merkel. Also, this annoying waste of engineering talent has a dark heart.

What's the point of Giant Robots that are not piloted by 19 year old girls who look 12?

  • Where the skin tight leotards?
  • Where are the busty, yet mousy, women who find courage and strength within a montage of training scenes?
  • Where is the slight suggestive cockpits they strap into, or the highly suggestive angel robots they fly, or the male mechanics who keep getting nose bleeds when the female pilots fall 'crotch first' onto their face?
  • Where are the aliens for that matter... I'm pretty sure there are supposed to be aliens at some point, right?
