Giant Robot Spider

April 20th, 2009 by frankie23

This is a lovely way to start the week! Footage of a giant robot spider in the warehouse district of Yokohama, wandering around, spitting steam and water. The thing is apparently 40 feet tall, and as you can see, there’s at least three people riding on it’s back. I think I’m in love. Who wants to help give the inventor some more funds so we can bring one of these to Burning Man?

imply fascinating, as the good Mr. Spock might say. Vintage images from a Kaiju art book showing anatomical cutaways of some of our favourite giant monsters. Apparently Godzilla’s flame breath comes from “a “uranium sack” and “nuclear reaction sack” that produce radioactive fire-breath and energize the body.” That’s pretty swift, if you ask me. Mothra and Anguirus are tucked below the cut. Follow the link to the originator for more, including Gamera!
