The build is approximately 2500 pieces and is inspired by designs from the 1960s Showa-era Mecha-Godzilla combined with a more modern aesthetic that is comparative to the Ready Player One Mecha-Godzilla design. I built this as a life-long fan of Godzilla and the kaiju genre of film. Big monsters scare and fascinate people. Building a robot monster seemed perfect. The build combines the art of design with the mechanisms of engineering as it not only looks cool, but functions as an articulated design concept with full range of motion in the joints of the arms, legs, head and tail.
