This robot model, called Chubu 01, was designed by Kazushi Kobayashi in Japan. I love the aesthetic of it: futuristic yet also somehow retro. Like it was designed in some alternate 1950s. Also, you drive around in its crotch, which obviously provides me with a certain amount of base, childish amusement. [Booooooom via Notcot]
