Giant - Achilles by DanielMead Giant - Achilles by DanielMead
LOL, this is one that I dug up from the dark corners of my memories. Anyone remember this train wreck? It's from a movie called "Robot Jox" Google it.

Robot Jox (and the sequel Robot Wars) was toward the end of an era back when the SFX were still done with scale models and real pyrotechnics rather than CGI and green screen today. As bad as the script was, I'm still kinda proud to have been part of that small group of modelmakers on those Full Moon features back in the mid 1980s. Really a piece of history now!

Any wonder why the Matsumoto-14 got fucked up while bekng piloted by a guy names Achilles?

I still love this movie but it has taught me one thing that when pitting mecha's in a deathmatch, Putting the grandstands with bad roofing and in the middle of the fight is a bad idea xD

Meh, the Matsumoto-14 (the actual name of that robot) is anything but a train wreck for the most part. Neither is Alexander's freakish yet menacing quadrupedal Vassilyev-42.

If anything, the movie's story flow and plot IS THE train wreck.

Despite that, Robot Jox is still a good amount of awesome, and I can't believe that Doc Matsumoto's masterpiece is even actually here in your gallery! :w00t:

I saw this on television when I was a kid. I still enjoy watching it to this day.

Just wish that there had been more robot fighting in Robot Jox... and the "final battle" kinda fizzled.

LOL, that is the image that I used as a reference to draw it.

Nice! The guy had a couple of prints of the blueprints up for sale (the thread's still there, so I'd assume they're still available). I pondered buying them until I looked at my pile of prints and realized I already don't have wall space.
