Gigantor is still big in Japan, as Mickey Mouse was in North America. In Kobe, Japan, they are building a 59 foot Gigantor monument to pay homage to the great 60’s Anime cartoon that opened the floodgates to the western world. Gigantor is better know at home as Tetsujin-28. Fans will flock to the park where Tetsujin-28 will be nestled. The statue is made of metal weighing 50 tons created by the Kobe Project.
