Engineer Masaaki Nagumo has built the world’s largest fully operational robot, standing 28 feet tall and weighing nearly five tons.

Nagumo grew up watching anime in Japan, which served as the building block for his mammoth creation. The engineer specifically looked to anime series Mobile Suit Gundam for inspiration, thus naming the robot LW Mononofu.

LW Mononofu is completely controlled by the user within, although Nagumo wishes his robot was considerably faster. And while the designer thinks his best work is yet to come, this 28-feet-tall monstrosity is pretty damn cool nonetheless.
