Our corresepondent in Tokyo has sent us a clip of the local television programming – where amazingly, girls are threatening to blow themselves to bits if they don’t get an engagement ring. There’s a countdown and all. See what happens!
Where else but Japan would a man spend eleven years in his garage to build this Kabutom MX-03 bug mecha. It actually works.
The man can drive the thing from inside or pilot the Bugdam (bug + Gundam) remotely, and can carry multiple passengers as well as himself. The thing is propped up mostly by the wheels (which allows it to move), but crawls along by pushing itself with the legs.
In order to get this thing from the man’s house to the shoot, they had to take it apart, put it on multiple trucks, and reassemble it using a crane. It took seven hours.
