Lots of things can inspire mankind to greatness, but nothing quite like the support of a gigantic towering robot designed to fight equally gigantic mythical monsters. We're only a few weeks out from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim hitting theaters, but damned if we can't wait for what is the closest thing we have to a Voltron movie yet.

Also, who says we have to wait until monsters attack to build skyscraper-sized robots? I don't think any of us would complain about our daily commute if we were carried to work on the shoulders of a towering mech, would we? [YouTube via Ain't It Cool News]
