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.

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.

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.
