… Unless of course you’re working on the upcoming Patlabor film and TV series, where the creators went ahead and said, ‘We’re going to build a giant 1:1 scale mech and shoot it on set. Then post photos of it being carted around on the back of a truck specifically to make the world jealous.’ Sometimes, I love this planet.
