In 1986 I Would Have Been Unsurprised At Speculation That Such a Thing Would Be For Sale in 2015

Allow me to explain...

Suidobashi Heavy Industries has offered a 12 foot tall mech starter kit. (via)

It appears to be kit build rather than a complete vehicle. 

It's available on Amazon Japan.

One of the "Brickmuppet's Crack Team of Science Babes" has thoughts on this development...



    From Google Translate... 
  • Weight about 5 tons, height 3.8m engine driven human four-legged giant toy robot (weight, height, changes in both optional)
  • Unlike normal riding toy, safety and comfort is not guaranteed, you can guarantee the dream of mankind "consisting robot pilot".
  • It will be the starter kit without arms, forearms, please purchase separately option.
 
 
 
 
 So the arms, and hands are separate meaning that getting the full super robot experience and participating in the mechatronic gladiatorial combat (which will surely be the killer ap for this device) will take some time. Note however, that this is a tripod, which might facilitate going for a slightly different aesthetic. 

"Uuu Laaa!"

One hopes that a heat ray and Thunder Child RC target model will be forthcoming.
