Giant Robot Taekwon V Statue Will be Six Times as Large as Giant Gundam Statue

by Lambert Varias

I haven’t heard of Robot Taekwon V up until now, but I think he’s about to become a lot more famous because of South Korea’s soon-to-be-built robot-themed amusement park, Robot Land. The park will have a statue of the 70s cartoon hero (who was known as Voltar the Invincible in the US). If you think Japan’s Gundam statue was already huge at 59 ft, Robot Taekwon V’s statue will be freakishly huge at 364 feet. As Plastic Pals points out, the statue will be twice as large as the Statue of Liberty. And even if you add Miss Liberty’s base the South Korean robot will still be much larger. Damn.

Unfortunately we don’t have actual pictures of the site or the statue’s parts, only conceptual drawings. Can someone translate the details below so we’ll know a lot more about Mazinger Z Robot Taekwon V?

Koreans – and people who can read Korean – can check out this newsletter as well as the theme park’s website for more details. I hope the statue won’t be made out of balloons or something.

In other news, China just announced that the Great Wall of China is actually a robotic snake statue based on anĀ  epic tale that was all the rage back in 230 BC. A tale about a giant robotic snake.

    reading the picture details, this isn’t a ‘statue’– the title in korean in the picture says its ‘Robot Taekwon V Tower’, where there will be exhibition about Taekwon V on the ground level, (showing movies, character exhibition, the history of Taekwon V, etc), and there will be an elevator where it will take you go the chest area which will be designed to be an observatory, [95m high from ground] and the head part [105m from the ground] is going to be astronomical observatory and maybe something that people can experience spaceship (the last part i’m not too sure)

    and since its a ‘tower’ not a ‘statue’, you wont have to worry about it being made out of balloons (:

    Yay! I live in South Korea, I will be able to see this!

  5. Koreanisstrange says:

    What’the meaning of last paragraph?A joke?
    Lots of Korean always say something which they think they are right.In fact,they know nothing.
    The Great Wall of China is a robotic snake???Nonsense!!!
    Everyone can search it on the internet about whether the Great Wall of China is a robotic snake.
    I don’t think it is a good joke.So stupid.

    • so nationalistic... says:

      obviously that last paragraph was a joke (i didn’t get it either) and it was posted by the author of the article. and also obviously the author of the article isn’t korean otherwise he would have been able to translate the korean himself instead of asking. take it up with the author if you must but don’t take it too personally, i’m pretty sure it was not meant to offend chinese people or anything related…

    You make a 18m Gundam statue?! We make a 100m robot building based on a 70s robot rip off of original MAZINGER!! This sounds like China coping DVDs but making them them bigger!!

    • technabob says:

      Hmmm, giant DVDs – now there’s an idea. Now if only I could find a player that would hold the 15-foot diameter copy of The Breakfast Club, I’d be all set.

    im pretty sure this will make their northern counter part build more nukes..

  8. westerner has japanese posse says:

    i love how the japanophiles hate every korean advance. i wonder if they get paid for that.

    a HUGE robot is GOOD for EVERYBODY.

    • urchin says:

      hell yeah! more robots are good for everyone. when is american going to get our robot. i’d trade the statue of liberty for a giant grendizer in a ny minute!
