Well, that certainly looks familiar. I could never get things like that to walk more than three and a half steps before it'd fall over. Good times.... not.

Are you sure you built it right? I had the original and don't remember having that much trouble getting it to walk.

I think it was the uneven concrete, who knows. My experience with 80's wind up toys has been about as bad as Lynnn's. I always seemed to get the Jumpstarters that didn't jump and the Battlechargers that didn't battle or charge. I wonder if any toy robots from the 80's ever worked as advertised.

I know this is totally unrealted but...

OMG, there's a guy on So You Think You Can Dance... that looks just like you!

Damn dopplegangers! Using my good looks and winning personality for evil! Obviously he is going to win!

Rob said...

Are you doing a funny voice in the video or is that how you really sound?

Evil King Macrocranios said...

My voice gets like that when I'm excited. I was under a lot of stress during that film. The garbage truck only comes by once a week and I really wanted to get it in the movie so it required good timing. But it didn't show up at the regular time this week and I was nervous about missing it. So I was anxious.

Finally he did show up but just as he pulled up to the neigbor's house my camera ran out of batteries and I had to run back in and change them and come back out and then the Zoid wasn't working and everything went all crazy and I started losing it.

I think that normally I sound like a cross between Fabio and Marty McFly. Lynn and Richard who comment here a lot could probably give a better description of my voice.

I was hoping the zoid would join up with the garbage truck to make some weird gestalt. Recycleus.

Don't ever come to Dairycon and take part in the Jumpstarter races then. You'd probably end up royally screwed. And Fred would probably laugh about that for years.
