Retrobots of the Month - Robomercials 2

Retrobots of the month for August brought to you by Nightmare Sound and the "Rise of the Retrobots" multi-media compilation project.

Any kid in their right mind would love a set of these guys which hit the streets just a few years before I would have been old enough to appreciate them.

The Japanese however, had developed a massive robot toy culture that went way back. As a product of wild imaginations and a million copycats, there were robot and monster TV series and fleets of accompanying products some of which made their way to American markets...
(Note the strange inclusion of Godzilla in this completely unrelated toy series/franchise)

And some of which didn't...

Perhaps with the endless barage of cool, cheap and cheesy TV shows like this one:

And the extreme expectations some of these TV commercials put on these Robot's abilities and interactive scope with their audience...

Enticing children with promises of massive destructive power;)
Perhaps that is what's got this next guy SOOO excited!

All for now till next month's Retrobots return. Till then, please go play at some of the ancillary laboratories:
Rise of the Retrobots on Myspace
Rise of the Retrobots Home
Monster Makers Lab
TAO X Productions
