Chobu 01 mechs are the Cadillacs of another world

50s-robots.jpg

These fantastic Chobu 01 mechas were created by Japanese 3D artist Kazushi Kobayashi as relics from “a parallel 50s where the robots are the most popular transport system.” I’m guessing the pilot seat in the pudendum explains a lot of that popularity.

You can buy one of these 1/12 scale models yourself if you wish for $315… assembly required.
