It's a goofy commercial, but I've got to wonder how many Taiwanese recruits are showing up asking how they can become mechwarriors???

Yep… the mecha meme has come. Giant stompy robots FTW.

I wonder how long the Taiwanese have been hiding the fact that they have mecha?

Well they are transformers so maybe for some time.

Did anyone else find it jarring to see the scene with the M60s and the robot together? Just something about that dinosaur tank rumbling with the mecha just struck me as… odd. The old with the new???

Mecha like that are much safer than conventional weapons, since all the heroes are already running away and leaping to safety when they invariably explode in a huge fireball.

Thanks, Michael Bay!
