Gundam vs. Gundam… for real!

Gundam vs. Gundam… for real!

Gundam games aren’t very popular outside of Japan, because the Mobile Suit Gundam anime isn’t very popular outside Japan, because cartoons about robots aren’t very popular outside of Japan. However, when you get a bunch of geeks to build their own robots in their own garden sheds using bits of their own wives’ old washing machines and then pit those robots against each other in fights to the death on television, then you get Robot Wars, a very popular TV series in both the US and UK between 1994 and 2004. The video below is, we like to think, an attempt to bridge the gap between these two contrasting robot cultures. At the International Robot Expo in Tokyo, these two remote control Gundam took part in a Robot Wars style duel. Watch the clip to find out which one emerged the victor.
