Gigantic Fire-Breathing Robot Babies Have Taken Over Roppongi

Japan's eclectic taste (at least by my subdued, antisocial New England standards) has spawned this robot baby art project thing in the streets of Roppongi. When I pictured the Apocalypse, it looked, I dunno, different.

Called Giant Torayan, this seven meter tall fire-breathing baby monstrosity is the work of artist Kenji Yanobe, who was obviously abused by a baby or a bad man dressed in an Astro Boy costume at some point in his life.

Giant Torayan will join a host of of other robots and sculptures around the neighbourhood as part of an art night that will see the place turned into a "robot-themed wonderland."
