Japan's Real Mecha Kuratas Unveiled at Wonderfest 2012

Normally I'm only looking at garage kit models at Wonderfest in the photos.  I've seen the new Madoka Magica figures, Pretty Cure, and tons of other nice 1/8 or 1/6 scale figures.  Then then over at Gigazine I noticed that somebody has a really BIG GARAGE with a 1/1 scale giant robot!  You can even put an order in for one if you have LOTS of coin laying around as high tech isn't cheap --- it'll cost you over $1.2 million dollars.

The Kuratas is a big robot and they did a pilot boarding demo and some motion demonstrations for the robot. No robot maneuvering demo, but it does look like they have come a long way on its development.  Motions seems a little sluggish but they have built a big custom robot with real moving arms and parts! This is pretty cool no matter what.  Demo weapons included a pair of miniguns so that would be pretty nasty if it were real.  Lets keep cheering on this giant mecha's development!

It also looks like they have updated their website.
