H.O.P. Toys a small toy company is bringing to life a classic B-movie character, Robot Monster. Robot Monster (a.k.a. Monster from Mars) is a 1953 independently made American black-and-white 3D science fiction film, remembered in later decades as one of the worst movies ever made, but hey it is still a classic (and not bad for a $16,000 budget).
Robot Monster tells the story of the alien robot Ro-Man's mission to Earth to destroy humanity. He manages to kill all but eight survivors, who have become immune to his death ray. Ro-Man runs afoul of the Great Guidance, his leader, when he becomes attracted to the human Alice. She is the eldest daughter of a surviving scientist, and he refuses to harm her. The Great Guidance must now come to Earth and finish what the Moon robot started.
Robot Monster or Ro-Man is basically a gorilla suit with a space suit style helmet, the front of the helmet is either blank or features a skull like face. H.O.P. Toys officially licensed the character for use for vinyl toys as well as a plush. There's a few different styles being released of the vinyl, a regular version featuring the blank face, a deluxe version with the blank face head and a skull face head, a glow in the dark orange vinyl version with regular and skull heads, a Kaiju Live exclusive Static Signal version featuring translucent grey vinyl with gold/silver glitter with regular and glow in the dark skull heads. All the vinyls stand 13 inches tall, retailing from $75 up to $105 depending on version.
The plush version stands 15 inches tall and has a removable helmet that features a skull head beneath, it retails for $40.
