Robot Monster by El-Jay-in-da-house Robot Monster by El-Jay-in-da-house
This is a photo of a custom action figure I made based on the old B-movie - "Robot Monster". There was minimal digital retouching on this. Taken in north Georgia, the locale looked reasonably like the California hills where the 1950s film was shot on almost zero budget. This action figure is actually a better realization of the character than was the actor in a gorilla suit and space helmet.

Am I the only one who thinks Robot Monster would make a cool comic book? Especially with Dynamite Productions?

Epic! I love this costume and the movie! People took that movie for granted, even though many thought the suit was cheese-y (considering the history behind the movie, them using bits and pieces from other movies for the costume) it was a very scary concept. Thanks for making it GREAT looking! Call miramax for a remake!
