"You have a giant robot, we have a giant robot – we have a duty to the science fiction lovers of this world to fight them to the death."
The U.S.-based MegaBots have challenged Japan-based Suidobashi Heavy Industries from Kyoto, Japan to a real-life giant robot battle. With this challenge manga, anime and sci-fi lovers across the world rejoiced. Ever since watching Gigantor and Voltron in the early 80's I and millions across the world dreamed of a time when this would become reality. We had Robot Wars here in the UK but Mathilda is hardly Eva Unit 1.
If this goes down it could be epic! I'm waiting now with bated breath for 2016; Twin Peaks, X Files and now the Giant Robot Duel. I feel like a teen again!
