This is the Robot Monster:
And this is Rustam Hasanov's redesign:
You can see his color version here, and buy Robot Monster movie posters at eBay.
Neat! The Super7 toy Big Sal was also partially influenced by Robot Monster - http://www.flickr.com/photos/vintango/5571244741/
Stephen King credits Ro-Man with sparking his initial interest in Sci-Fi and Horror. From his book ON WRITING: A MEMOIR OF THE CRAFT, he said that "The first thing I remember watching on [TV] was Robot Monster, a film in which a guy dressed in an ape-suit with a goldfish bowl on his head -- Ro-Man, he was called -- ran around trying to kill the last survivors of a nuclear war. I felt this was art of quite a high nature."He makes me laugh, that Stephen King. That's a great book, highly recommended.
Fucking Great, love this!It goes to show how archaic the basic concept was, that it could still hold by little brushing up.
One of the most LOVING tributes to Robot Monster I have ever seen. Love it. And I think Dynamite Productions should do a Robot Monster comic book with Rustam Hasanov's modernized designs. Brilliant.
