Not as clumsy or random as a Rocket Punch!



Here's a glimpse into the Bloomingdale's toy aisle somewhere in New York City back in November 1977. That's Raydeen standing directly atop a Dragun next to a Mazinga and bunch of other Shogun Warriors. Through the power of Google I found out the kid wielding what looks like a Force Beam grew up to be a Venezuelan film maker! (Actually he was already Venezuelan. You can't grow up to be from Venezuela.)

i was only 5 back then but this still brings back some memories. by the way i was listening to NPR today at work and heard you were going to be guest on tomorrow's show in regards to some special segment on robotic sciences.

I think you might be talking about that author guy who wrote "How to Survive a Robot Apocalypse" or "Robocalypse" or something like that. The easy way to tell us apart is he's an accomplished author with degrees and movies based on his work and I am pretty much a nobody who has done nothing. But I can see how you might get us confused.

whoops sorry about that. but none the less i wouldn't say your a nobody after all you did put that cool ROM podcast together.
by the way i did a review of the Annihilators mini-series on Youtube recently. you can find the link at the ROM blog under the June 8th posting if your interested.

Ya know, if they ever made a movie about ROM (stretch your imagination for a minute) and it was being directed by Michael Bay not only would I not go see it I would start a boycott campaign! You can watch my 1 1/2 minute rant about Transformers 3 at:
