Vstone's Tetsu-jin 28 goes on sale!

You know, we're fairly sure there's nothing Vstone's Tetsujin 28 can do that the the OMNIZERO.2 can't, but damned if Gigantor doesn't have a place carved out in our hearts / homes / wallets. We've been waiting a long time for you, Gigantor, and Vstone's finally put it on sale (in Japan). This bigger than big, stronger than strong space-age robot -- in your command or not -- doesn't come cheaply though: expect to fork out ¥351,750 ($2980 US), a price close to what we understand the entire cartoon series cost to produce back in the 50s.
