What's the point of this thing?

The website touts it's different claws and arm attachments.

That's nice, but it's so wide with dual arms i don't think it could maneuver very well if space is tight.

It would be useful in a Junkyard for crushing and smashing things maybe? I don't know either.

I can see the Super Guzzilla faring well at the junkyard crushing irreparable old vehicles.

Someone needs to photoshop that thing over a field of bones while lasers blow things up in a nightscape background, yes. Laughing

Well, then it's appropriate that they call it "Guzzilla".

For those that don't know, such machines are often used for construction or excavation.

Making an anime about such would likely not be as popular as those Robot Wars-type series.

It isn't autonomous, it isn't very humanoid. Calling it a robot is a bit of a stretch. Might as well call DSV Alvin a robot.

Yeah, it does look a primitive version of a Hunter/killer Tank
