Kobe Gigantor

Recently, I wrote about the full size, 18 meter Gundam found in Odaiba, Tokyo to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

A 18 meter Gigantor robot is currently being constructed in Kobe (about a 2 hour bullet train ride west of Tokyo, home of the famous and expensive Kobe beef) which is scheduled for completion at the end of September.  The original Japanese name for Gigantor is Tetsujin 28-Go.

Just like the Gundam in Tokyo, Gigantor in Kobe is sure to be a popular tourist attraction.
