Wouldn't it be 15th anniversary? As for relative sizes, a Valkyrie is
like 10 meters or so, isn't it?

Most Super Robots were quite big, but IIRC, Mazinger Z wasn't that big,
it was 18m tall (like a regular MS). But other Super Robots were bigger:
Great Mazinger (25m), Grendizer (30m), Getta Robo (38m), Getta Robo G
(50m), Combattler V (57m), Raideen(52m), Daimos(45m), Gaiking (50m),
well I guess you get the picture? :)

games, go for the Super Robot Taisen series, you can't be disappointed
(and they try to make a consistent story!)
