126, ROBOIDS

Postby jeffbert » 7 years ago

Image

The good news is that the ROBOIDS thread is here; the bad news is that this animated version has been simplified, & some of the action & drama has been cut from the script.

Image
We open with this robotic investigator, who, as the saying goes, is not long for this world.

Image
Right on cue, the Roboids arrive!

Image
This thread will have quite a few images, so, I had to choose which parts to cover by way of text. The helicopter has a tape recorder in it, that the doomed robot had just activated as the Roboids began their attack.

Image
The all too infrequent occasion of Atom in clothes.

Image
This reel of audio tape is the only evidence of the Roboids' existence.

Image
Ochanomizu introduces Atom to the Robotic heroes.

Image
I call this one, Frankenstein-forehead, though I think his name is "Dop-oo."

Image
Cyrano, the dandy of the group, uses too much cologne, loves kids, & has a rather unusual phobia for an adult. He has nose attachments that include a very sensitive olfactory gland, and a gun.

Image
This is Box, like Luna (Rocketta) of the [B]ROBOT OLYMPICS[B], he converts into a missile.

There was an Indian Chief as the 5th member, but his agent lost the contract, & his character was cut,

Image
Oops!

Image

Image

Image

Image
This Roboid is new to the story as (I assume) Roboid #4; the manga #4 was a shape-shifting female who abducted Uran & took her place. She, Uran, the abduction, etc., were all cut from this version. :cry:

Image
Maybe this is Cyrano's other nose. My bad, for saying it was a gun. :blush:

Image

Image

Image
Poor Dr. Ochanomizu, without that tape reel that the Roboids stole, nobody will believe him.

Image
Tawashi is making circles in the air, indicating he thinks O is nuts.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Does this seem familiar? :p Roboid #1 is about to reveal an even scarier face:

Image

Image

Image
After the destruction of 1 Roboid & 1 robot, they mourn the latter's loss.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Lolo, the Roboid leader's son is lonely; he wants both friends & to go outside.

Image

Image

Image
Box is annoyed at Cyrano's use of cologne.

Image

Image

Image

Image
One of many violations of the laws of physics. :p

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
What is bothering Cyrano?

I noticed Atom's little "magic act" with his suit... :p (It's too bad he ripped it up. It was a good look for him; made him look "professional" and fit in more with the other guys.)

Did you guys notice the break in consistency in some of the earlier frames . . . Atom is in a suit . . . then in his speedo . . . then in a suit . . . then in his speedo

And Mushi Productions thought we wouldn't catch that!!! Tisk! Tisk!

Atom is a sharp dressed man in that suit, no? XD

I actually did notice that when going through the pictures. I figured it was probably one of those instances where they reused animation.
That or the animator drawing him had some "special" moments.

And yes, he is quite dashing in his suit!

That's what I was talking about! :p Yes, it is a very nice suit.

Btw, April? If you have that avatar on photobucket or somesuch, please to share it? I'm on my sister's laptop right now, and this is the only way I can get a hold of things.

EDIT: Too late. :(

I saw that too but I wasn't sure if Jeffbert was posting the frames a bit out of order. He's drawn in that suit in one of the '80 series episodes in color and it looks even better, I think his tie is red.

Well, he has a red suit a bit like it, except he's got shorts instead of pants. The tie is either green, or blue... probably blue.

He wears the same outfit in the '03 series, only it's green, with a red tie.

Ah, that's where I saw it!

Also he must have had a hard time getting those long pants on over his boots! (Bell bottoms would work better!)

:lol: Those frames are in proper order. I forgot to mention the inconsistency, though it was rather obvious. :hyo:

BTW,
Image
is, as I recall, the one Hamegg as the hunter (Viper Snakely) is watching on Kimba.
