Kickstarter for MEGABOTS Upgrade - Team USA GiantT Robot To Dual Against Japan

American robotics company called, Megabots, premiered their giant mech to the world. This thing quickly took over the Internet because it was a giant robot that was piloted by humans, Gundam Wing anyone?

During the same unveiling the guys over at Megabots issued a challenge to their Japanese counterparts, Suidobashi Heavy Industry. Suidobashi had beat the Americans to creating a giant piloted robot.

So in order to try and get some credibility back, they challenged them to a giant robot duel. East versus West. America versus Japan.
