Seriously, who has to blow which congressman to approve this? I envision this across the bay from Liberty Island with the water some sort of mecha no-man’s land. Gundam with his beamsaber and Ms Liberty with her… book. It’s a heavy book. And she’s green, like Yoda. I’m sure she can kick ass.
I bet the Statue of Liberty has secretly been retrofitted over the years and actually is a combat mecha just waiting for when Japan get uppity.
