This robot paper toy named Tetsujin 28, based on the Tetsujin 28-go manga, the giant robot controlled by Shotaro Kaneda, and the papercraft created by tjaizue. The manga was later adapted into four anime TV series. The first, in 1963, was the first Japanese anime series to feature a giant robot. The 1963 series was later released in America as Gigantor. A live action motion picture with heavy use of computer generated graphics was produced in Japan in 2005.
During the final days of World War II, the Japanese military is secretly developing a superweapon intended to help save the Japanese Empire. After twenty-seven failed attempts, Dr. Kaneda completes a three-story high, remote-controlled robot. The robot is officially named Tetsujin 28-go. The war, however, is already over, and Dr. Kaneda dies of heart failure shortly after completing Tetsujin 28. Rather than becoming the military's key weapon, Tetsujin 28 is given to Dr. Kaneda's ten-year-old son, Shotaro. Under Shotaro's control, Tetsujin is put to work stopping criminals and enemy robots.
