Giant Robot Vs Giant Robot, America Vs 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.

This way if Megabots could be the first to the show, maybe they could be the better and strong of the two.

This was a while back, but now Suidobashi as responded and it looks like they are up for the challenge. In their video response they couldn't hold back from making fun of the Americans, by pointing out that “Just building something huge and stick guns on it. It’s… super American.”

Speaking about his own team Kogoro Kurata, Founder and CEO of Suidobashi said it would be a disgrace if the Japanese team lost, saying, “We can’t let another country win this. Giant robots are Japanese culture.”

He does have a point, there is a whole genre of anime that is only about giant robots. Between Transformers, Gundams, and Zoids they kind of do have a lock on the giant robot market.
