five stars for pronouncing robot as "rowbutt"

BillFisto - 2008-07-24

Rowbutt Commando: He's alternately going cross-eyed and wall-eyed for you!

But you know, voice activated controls on kid's toys in the 50s is pretty cool.

baleen - 2008-07-24

You probably had to be pretty damn rich to get one of these.

rulestein - 2008-07-24

It doesn't look like real speech recognition. I am guessing you have to manually set the dial to the function you want and then make a noise into the microphone to activate the function.

Xiphias - 2008-07-25

rulestein, that's exactly how it works, I think

SharoKham - 2008-11-18

So I have the option of setting the dial and simply yelling OBEY? Rockin'

I owned one of these when I was five. It was awesome, but not voice activated in any way. The controller had buttons. You were supposed to speak into it to PRETEND it was voice activated.

Goddamn, that dude will destroy.

Corman's Inferno - 2008-07-24

This has about eight things a kid could choke on. Goddamn toy safety lawsuits! You robbed me of Robot Commando!

kiint - 2008-07-24

i think thats McCain at :30

Keefu - 2008-07-24

Golly gee willigers!

StanleyPain - 2008-07-24

Because nothing says doom-bringing robot of apocalyptic destruction like GOOGLY EYES!!

Xiphias - 2008-07-25

are you implying those eyes aren't fucking creepy?

robotkarateman - 2008-08-18

All we're saying is those slanty-eyed Shogun Warriors couldn't seen in all directions at the same time.

Caminante Nocturno - 2008-07-24

We're just presuming that you're not going to use Robot Commando against the United States.

Hooper_X - 2008-07-24

Okay, how much am I gonna have to lay down on ebay to get one of these in working condition?

Hooper_X - 2008-07-24

Update: Looking at ebay, at least 0.

Also, it looks like they dialed back a lot of its badassery for the finished toy - he doesn't throw handfuls of BBs anymore, he tosses red plastic balls, and the head piece is solid red, not clear. Still, that's awesome.

Chip - 2008-07-24

I imagine he'll throw handfull of whatever the hell you like. It's a pretty simple mechanism there.

Robot Commando is the best robot. Those EYES.

Hooper_X - 2008-07-24

Yeah, that's true. You could totally load him up with a bunch of thumbtacks and seriously fuck up your friends.

Dib - 2008-07-29

If you try that out, be sure to record+youtube+poetv it.

Desidiosus - 2008-07-24

I liked this more than I liked Cloverfield.

Comatose2 - 2008-07-24

I like how you have to turn the dial on the remote to "forward", "left", "fire", etc. before you say the command. A more accurate description would be sound activated, like the clapper, than voice activated.

Also, good thing the secret weapon is clearly visible through his perspex noggin.

garcet71283 - 2008-07-24

Robot Commando will only listen to you.

Robot Commando is your bitch.

FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown - 2008-07-25

Rusty Venture, nooooooooo!

Five stars for this.


The Mothership - 2011-10-07

what tamago said.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2015-05-06

I got one of these for Christmas in 1963, when I was five. It was an awesome Toy, but what bullshit! Any voice control was pretend. The model buildings tanks, and planes, the low angles, the kid staying out of the picture, so there's no perspective, it all makes it look so much bigger than it actually was, , especially to a kid who didn't know better. . I don't remember playing with this as vividly as I remember seeing the commercial for the first time, and nearly spurting little boy jizz. I don't think it was this commercial. I think the commercial I saw in 1963 was similar, but even more dramatic than this, unless that was just how I experienced it.

That missile that came out of its head knocked some really expensive porcelain knicknacks of my grandma’s shelves.
