But of course, it's a Japanese walking robot

EDIT: those are apparently paintball guns, according to nojay

Wow! It's ED-209!

But he is no match for the army of killer Japanese robot cats. I wonder if HenryErnst Stavro Blofeld owned one?

Possibly Henry. I can imagine him sitting there in the commentary box, watching Yorkshire playing Lancashire and stroking a pussy.

It does have guns, paintball guns in this case (have a careful look at the left-hand-side of the cockpit in that picture).

I saw a video a while back of this "thing" lurching slowly and clumsily across a factory yard and firing at targets. Not too impressive.

Well, first generation and all that. I'm sure they'll improve it, and soon everyone will have one stored in the basement, ready to erupt through the roof whenever tentacle-faced aliens land in New Jersey.
