The Gaia Colossus being built, from Sonic the Hedgehog #285.

During the final hours of the Shattered World Crisis, Dr. Eggman was victorious at his capture of Chip and the collection of the Chaos Emeralds. After learning of the Gaia Gate, Eggman had his Egg SWATs go into each Gaia Temple via the Gaia Gate and placing each Chaos Emerald inside. This, in turn, resulted in all seven temples forming the Gaia Colossus, which Eggman had plans to use the giant for his own means, much to Chip's dissatisfaction.[1]
