Is this some kind of paint ball robot battle, if so, that is pretty weak.

Maybe so...but it will history in the making, the first confirmed mech battle between to mechs, another sci fi concept turning into reality.

One small step closer to IGPX being a thing.

Most principally, this reminds me of the optimistic ending card from Patlabor.

We should have more anime with these types of competitions.

Mecha battles may one day be a real thing in the future.

It should be interesting, this is the early stuff. So this may look staged. The tests with Megabot's old version show that direct hits to the cockpit would cause injuries. Which is what you get when your seating with only cage protecting you from paint balls.

The chinese one looks interesting. Weather or not the thing more effective or not that's another story.

I hope the battle isn't staged for sake of safety, like profession Wrestling. I'll lose interest pretty damn quickly.

That is what I mean, large robots that aren't nimble at all, firing paintballs at each other isn't that much interesting. If you are going to make mega robots fight each other, why human pilots. They just get in the way of the carnage.

So this will probably be some scripted crap.

I never thought I'd see it happen. Shows like "Gundam" and whatnot have shown stuff like this for years. It looks like now,an anime staple is about to become a real life thing. At least,the battle's going to be with paintballs. That's a good thing. But still,I never thought I'd see something like this happen.
