Motion Filled Fukuiraptor
Fukuiraptor coming from Japan had to fill some sort of stereotype about giant reptiles and robots I think, otherwise a part of all of us would fill a little let down. We may not admit that to ourselves, but how often does Japan get talked about without some mention of some sort of high tech wizardry? The answer is rarely, of course, but that is a good thing today because there are videos of this high technology robotic tomfoolery in action. Someone somewhere in Japan like Fukuiraptor and robotics enough that there exists video of animatronic Fukuiraptor!
The color scheme is very Jurassic Park velociraptor, as are the overall postures of the hands and legs. There are also a few tribute videos, music and images again, that have mostly correct images. There is always one or two that slip through because someone else labeled the image incorrectly to begin with. The one below is probably the better of the two that I watched.
