Ho ho ho

You know what I want for Christmas?

A giant robot.

That little puppy is being built by a 26 year old steelworker in Alaska. The red colour and the horns suggest he has been watching a fair amount of Manga as inspiration. I would query this though:

It's been a common theme in U.S. science fiction, too, although typically on a more human scale. Robert Heinlein's 1959 novel "Starship Troopers," and the 1997 film made from the book, featured soldiers with powerful exoskeletal armor that dramatically augmented their strength.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't remember any exoskeletal armor making an appearence in the film. Book yes, film no.
