Do you like giant robots? If so you'll love MegaBots :) They've brought this robot that 2 men can drive, and can shoot with paint gun.

MegaBots is running "A360 Challenge" to design robots, in preparation for a robot colosseum of 8 giant robots to battle.



Recently, MegaBots challenged Japanese giant robot KURATAS by Suidobashi Heavy Industry for a robot duel!



Kogoro Kurata responds on his blog post:
"But before that... what were other Japanese doing? We should've had robots in Japan to fight and the winner should have fought with other countries' robots, right? I've been waiting for 4 years since I made KRATAS... I'm frustrated. I'll think about this so just wait, MegaBots!"

Update 7/6: Suidobashi officially responds. It's happening, woot!
