In the big battle scene, there is a moment when the Iron Giant fires at a tank, and before the energy ball hits, that two tank crewmen jump out before the tank disappears.

Both Giant Robo and the Iron Giant are thinking robots who befriend little boys who command them (Daisaku Kusama/Johnny Sokko and Hogarth Hughes, respectively), both were originally created as weapons of destruction, and both sacrifice themselves to save Earth in similar manners (both fly out into space and hurtle into a meteor and nuclear missile, respectively) in the respective finales.

When he tapes the flashlight to the gun before going after the giant, it's a reference to the scene in Aliens where Sigourney Weaver's character tapes together the gun and some other things before going after Newt in the queen alien's lair.
