walking trash can style mecha
My friend from college introduced me to world war robot (and mecha in general, as well as 4chan), and those toys are way too expensive for my ass, but I love the style... any anime, or model kits, or toys that have this aesthetic?
They're mostly comedy reliefs or sidekicks like in recent Space Dandy and that 2D Toei movie by Urobutchy. If you're talking about "rat style", it's the opposite of Japanese mentality.
Hopefully they'll get around to building that prototype with the full cockpit. Also more light up gimmicks.
google Kow Yokoyama, he created SF3D which is a story that involves a huge series of mecha models like this. They are model kits, not toys, but you can get them at [places like Hobbylink Japan
Its called the Grasshopper, a Kazuhisa Kondo design he has used in his manga stories
I just scoured the internet in hopes of finding even a resin model of it to no avail. I think your best hopes would be to either commission someone to scratch build the parts or crack down and do it yourself, unfortunately.
I would love to scrapbuild something like this
Gear Krieg. Well kinda. There aren't any sentient 3m tall automatons.
