Oh, man. Ze memories.

While they were fun to watch, it was bittersweet to know that we weren't going to see it happen in real life.

Or at least we thought so.

ICYMI: On June 30, USA-based giant robot makers (yes, there's such a thing!) MegaBots Inc. challenged their Japanese counterpart Suidobashi Heavy Industries (S.H.I.) to a giant robot battle.

And, after a bit of waiting, S.H.I has accepted. Done deal: Mecha-flavored mayhem here we come!

Here's the response of S.H.I. CEO, Kogoro Kurata:

Oh no he didn't! Trash-talk mode: ON!

However, there are no official deets on the showdown yet (e.g. venue, time, date). Based on S.H.I.'s reply, we could be up for some awesome combat in this metallic skirmish. There's also no word yet on the combatants the mecha makers will deploy, although we can expect something like their previous creations...
