ROBOT WARS / The Final Conflict Has Begun! - 1993

I've already posted ROBOT JOX and CRASH AND BURN, so, here's another Charles Band production... In the year 2041, the rebel Centros are a plague to the survivors of the great toxic gas scare in 1993. A renegade Megarobot pilot and an archaeologist must team up to thwart the Centro's attempts to resurrect a hidden Megarobot, with which they can challenge the prevailing order.

This one stars Don Michael (ALIEN FROM LA) Paul, Barbara (SPACE TRUCKERS) Crampton, James (BABY FACE NELSON) Staley, Lisa (CAPTIVE RAGE) Rinna, Danny (WILD PALMS) Kamekona, with a list of others...

These people are on their way to see a town that was abandoned during the toxic gas scare of 1993, a historical tour! They are driven there on a big old Megarobot.

It's piloted by our hero, Marion Drake. with his co-pilot pal along for the ride through the desert. They finally pull into the station...

Marion sees old flame, Leda Fanning, and she puts him in his place after a few of his sexist remarks to her!

Rooney, the big wig at the project, invites his Chinese friends to come to the facility and check out all the fun things there are to do. He lets him drive a Megarobot for the halibut.

Well, our pilot and co-pilot take a break in the lounge, they play a silly fighting robot game to waste some time. Looks like some fun, don't it?

Here's one for Eegah!!.. A group goes out to a an abandoned town after that gas thing, they walk around and see what things were like in 1993! They shot this footage in Taft, CA.

And, it happens, Chinese dude Wa-Lee and his pals take the place over and shoot a throwaway character to show they're not effing around!

Wa-Lee shows Rooney who's the boss now!.. Freakin' maroon!

In the meantime, our heroes try and dig an old Megarobot out of the ground to fight Wa-Lee in his stolen Megarobot!.. Hurry!!

Mission accomplished! Marion heads out to confront Wa-Lee. They go round and round. That bottom photo shows how Megarobots make little Megarobots!

Well anyway, Wa-Lee gets his ass kicked, bringing this tale to an end... Tune in tomorrow when Eegah!! kicks our ass with something special, just for you and me!

Saw ROBOT JOX in a theater with dad back in 1989, and we both enjoyed it a lot. I've seen CRASH AND BURN somewhere, it was ok but didn't thrill ROBOT WARS looks a bit more interesting. Will check it out. I'm not a huge fan of the Chas. Band 'films-made-to-sell-toys' M.O., but even some of his worst films are stupid-funny (like one I picked up for a buck called OOGA BOOGA).
