The 50-foot mechanical creature was spotted hanging on the side of an office building earlier today in Liverpool, England. It will soon take to the streets as part of La Machine’s public theatre event which unfolds over the next five days.

This is in Liverpool Street, London not in Liverpool!
MMM. This site turned to Flash 9. What a pitty. No video’s anymore.
Lol, I love the sign that behind the spider. Demolition by spiders, that would be cool!

It’s a tachikoma from Ghost in a shell…
