Do not fear the robot revolution…embrace it! Seriously, this is an urgent nerd-anime alert. Do you have an interest in piloting a Robotech Destroid or Veritech fighter? Ready to jump into a Nebula or Earth Engine compactor? Is your Gundam suite becoming passé or or maybe you are holding off for something more Earth Engine-like. Maybe you are tired of out the outrageous electric bill from your Evangelion suit. Well fear not, your robot-piloting mecha dreams are about to come true with the Kuratas.

The Kuratas is not an early version of the ED-209 (Robocop)

The Kuratas is a gasoline-powered, four-wheeled mobile battle suit of death. Okay, well most of that is true…sans the death part. It is a pretty cool idea brought to fruition by a group of engineers and designers of Suidobashi Heavy Industry. Now this suit is actually a few years old, I am just now learning about it so it is new to me. Here’s hoping to a few more upgrades over the last three years. Maybe they switched from petrol to energon cubes or something.

The custom paint job looks great!

While not quite up to par with a Tachikoma, it could pass as an early manned prototype.

It retails for a little over $1 million USD and can be purchased via Amazon Japan.
