Vintage Robots, Part Five

Larry Blamire, the writer and director of 1950s-style scifi spoof, The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (2001), has a long-gestating project that sounds too good not to happen eventually. It’s one that he says has been with him since the 1980s, one that he keeps coming back to. He’d like to get the appropriate level of funding to be able to put it into production — and from the potential evident in his conceptual drawings, I’d love him to get the funds to do it, too.

The project is called Steam Wars, and it features gigantic steam-driven robots battling for sovereignty.

Check out these concept drawings — and go ring that entrepreneurial financier you know, at once …
