Ideal's Robot Commando
As I procrastinate in working on a couple of planned entries, I thought I'd point you to David McRobie's Xenorama. He's been doing theme months lately, and April is TV commercials. In that spirit, I post this video for Ideal's Robot Commando toy.
I love this ad, since it emulates giant monster movies so well. This is the kind of thing that won't fly anymore, due to the FCC's pesky regulations about depicting things that can't actually happen. Those flying planes would nix this one now.
Still, it's a great spot. I was never so dumb when I was a kid to think my toys could perform super feats, but hey, I guess that's a thing.
