Yep, the Japanese really know how to impress folks: now on sale is KURATAS, a 4 ton giant mech that you can ride inside.
No, this is NOT a joke, go here to see videos of KURATAS in action.
For a piddling 1.3 mil you get a steel monster that every Evil Genius will be queueing up to buy . . . oh hang on, the weapons are definitely not mil spec. Ah, who cares? You can crush all opposition anyway!
Thanks to The Register for this all-important news flash.
( Get yours before the world ends on December 21 and you get a free cup holder !)
I love the Japanese, can't wait for competing companies to come out with bigger, badder models . . . . PATLABOR in real life ! Woo-hoo!
