  1. what a joke. platform already one metre from ground. ofc chinese are orginally taller than masai-mara people and tanks know as minature machines whic need high platforms… lol


    1. I think the reason for placing it so damn high is to avoid idiot kids try to climb this thing while their parents ignoring them.


  2. Revealed this weekend? They made a second one? Or is this the same one they have shown each year for the past 3 years. As it has the same number on the side.
