R.O.T.O.R. / Manson International, WestWind Pictures - 1987

Hey, if you never knew the meaning of R.O.T.O.R., welp, it means Robotic Officer Tactical Operation Research! You'll notice this poster is VHS box art, the only way it was released here.

The story's about a prototype robotic human intended for crime combat that escapes from the development lab and goes on a killing rampage... Lots of no-name actors, filmed in Dallas, TX, home of the Gas Monkey and Fired Up Garages!

The whole mess starts here, at Division Headquarters, exactly at 10:00 pm, CST.

Red haired dude has some interesting info for the development division of the corporation...

He has brought his super 8 film to show the guys what he's been working on, a robotic framework for a super cop! The company is very interested in the thing or else we wouldn't have a movie! Oh yeah, the robot's nickname is... Willard!

Later, at the Tactical Operations Computer Center, this guy is working away with the help of his personal robot that's wearing a copper's hat, talk about goofy looking!!

Anyway, they make a R.O.T.O.R. cop, he breaks out of the lab and locates a cool motorcycle to get around on. He steals the bike and is gone before anyone figures it out.

The first thing the defective super cop does is locate a couple making out in their car.

The dude gets out to bribe him with a few bucks, but, gets shot in the head while holding up the money up for him to see!

The girl gets away after honking the horn, which disables the crazy cop from the sound and drives to a gas station to use the phone. That plum colored phone booth? looks pretty cool.

But, he follows her on his cycle and torments her again as she tries to ditch him. Hero shows up and shoots the crazy cop a number of times, but, it only stops him momentarily!

Then, our hero comes up with a plan to destroy the menace, He lassos his wrists and has him tied up between some trees...

He pushes a button, and... KA-BLAM!!! No more robot!! The day is saved.

But, get ready for R.O.T.O.R. II, this time though, we get a freakin' bad girlie-bot!! Tune in tomorrow when Eegah!! will have a very special post for us to enjoy, later!

I don't really know it outside of excerpts, but that bottom photo interests me, because I'm interested in any given film with FBB's (female bodybuilders). At least, I guess she would be called one, judging by the shoulders.
I just wish they weren't cast as the "bad guys" in movies quite as often as they are.
