I wish he could help Tohoku.

Tetsujin 28-go (Iron Man #28) is a super hero of TV animation in '60s. This statue was built in 2009 as a symbol of reconstruction of Nagata area of Kobe, which was destroyed by Great Hanshin earthquake. Kobe has been reconstructed. Why not Tohoku ?
I wish he could help Tohoku...

I wish he could help clear all the damage caused by recent and earlier earthquakes/tsunami but unfortunately this giant is only a lot of plastic, although he looks fantastic ;)

@Monique: You're right, Monique, but let me correct a little. He is not made of plastic, he's made of steel !
