18 Foot Mech For Sale

Super dorks with at least $40,000 to spare can bid on a towering mecha that shoots flames and has red glowing eyes.

Carlos Owens Junior of Wasilla has listed his 18-foot handmade hydraulic exoskeleton on eBay.

The minimum bid is $35,000, plus $5,000 to ship the 3,000 pound structure from Alaska.

The 27-year-old apprentice ironworker says he's selling the rust-red machine to fund construction of his next project -- a mobile amphibious mecha that would run on wheels or tracks.

Owens took almost two years and more than $20,000 to construct his prototype mecha in his parents' back yard. Unlike robots, which are operated remotely, mechas are operated by the person riding inside the frame.

I guess there isn't a whole lot to do for kids in Alaska. If you want it, check it out here.
