Monstrous fire breathing Robosaurus to be auctioned

robosaurus 1

This monstrous robot stands 40 feet tall (twice as tall as Tyrannosaurus Rex), weighs 60,000 pounds (over 3 times heavier than Tyrannosaurus Rex), lifts 4,000 pound cars up higher than a 5 story building, breathes 20 feet fingers of flame, and crushes cars with 24,000 pounds of transfixing force. Would you like to buy it to keep it at your place? Well, this gigantic robot dubbed Robosaurus, created 17 years ago by Monster Robots in Southern California, is set to be auctioned off during the annual Barrett-Jackson car auction in Scottsdale, Arizona between January 12 and January 20. A pilot, who sits in a cockpit inside the dinosaur’s head, controls the machine with a sophisticated fly-by-wire electronic system.

For your info, this devil transforms into a legal, licensed trailer for transportation across the nation’s highways. I hope that it’s new owner or owners don’t start invading the streets like Godzilla. One thing is for sure that this monster will sell for huge bucks but, literally speaking, I am least interested to see it blowing fire on the streets.
