ROBOBASE Sponsors Event Featuring Samurai Robot

In Nagoya, A store by the name of ROBOBASE, was featuring an event, just for robots. As background information, the owner of the store, Daisuke Goto, has built many robots from hobby kits. He also spent much of his time at local robot events. For example, he participated in robot dance performances and even bot fights. So this time he decided to host his own robot event, as publication of his store and robots. He explained and presented many of his robots from the event, but the one I liked the most was the samurai robot. It may not be as complicated as some robots, but for a hobby kit robot, it looks pretty dang cool. Dust collector or not, Asahi Shimbun, the second largest newspaper industry in Japan, featured this event in their newspaper. So don’t worry, you’re not the only one who thinks this is cool.
