Really Cool Giant Robot Unveiled at Comic Con

The future is now, man! And it’s kind of scary. Watch this video, where Adam Savage introduces the new robot.

It took the mighty minds and resources of WIRED, YouTube, Stan Winston Studios, Legacy Effects, and Conde Nast Entertainment to create an insanely detailed, one-of-a-kind, 9 foot 9 inch Mech with four arms to usher in the 2013 San Diego Comic Con. And who better to announce it than Adam Savage, of Tested and Mythbusters. It is ready to blow your mind. And coming soon to YouTube’s Geek Week … a huge mini-series showing how this colossus was built.

      Not a robot? What do you mean?

        It’s a suit, with the lower arms the actual person’s arms, using linkages to the upper arms to control them.

    You can tell there is a guy inside. Just by the proportions and movement.

    Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic…

    Yep. It’s definitely a suit. But if I bumped into this thing in a dark alley on a cold, misty night, I would not be taking the time to figure out how the arms and legs work. I would be making *my* arms and legs work.

    I see this as a nice prequel to a real live Ironman suit.

    The army is opening its checkbook.

    I am a long time Comic Con Star Wars fanatic. This year I found my self in beautiful San Diego looking for new opportunities to invest on my collectible action figure toys.

    this is my collectors pick from this years Comic Con, a Star Wars vehicle 5 pack from PuzzleZoo, they have a limited quantity and can be finished anytime.

    PS: Do not open the box, the value is in the condition
