It sucks when you see objects of lust that are unavailable — like this remote-controlled Mecha Godzilla. Japanese toymakers at Bandai are the geniuses behind this this
lifesize, if you're a mouse 20-inch-high silver creation complete with flashing lights that can roam about your house striking fear into its inhabitants and causing hours of unproductivity — that is, if you work from home, like I do.
It walks, it roars, it spews crazy lights from its mouth, chest and fingertips. But by far the most excellent thing it does is the crazy Exorcist-reminiscent head-spinning gesture. It's not often I wish I were an $870 toy, but I see this and I am filled with the icy shards of irrational envy that make me want to beat my chest, roar angrily, destroy cities and eat their citizens as if they were chocolate-covered raisins.
*Memo to those nice people at Bandai. Make some more of these shiny toys for us robo-chumps, please. PLEASE.
