This is literally something right out of the pages of a video game (like Xenosaga). It's a robotic suit that stands over 10 feet tall, with a cockpit for a human to sit inside and control. We reported about the Land Walker about one year ago the first time. Now it is actually on sale and there is a video of the huge robot in action.

Called The Land Walker, it weighs close to 1 ton (2,000 pounds!) and is controlled by four pedals from inside the cockpit. Additionally, it has built-in air guns that can shoot bullets (not real bullets, though..."sponge bullets"). Talk about a totally pimped out Halloween costume!And yes, the robot is actually available for sale, though right now only in Japan, for about $315,000.
