I remember I saw it one weekend while we were barbecuing as my aunt, uncle and cousins were staying the weekend with us. I also distinctly remember I saw it on a Saturday when my dad saw it on TV (or maybe my cousins had brought it with them, I don't remember that much). I had a toy of one of the giant mechs, I think it was the one the main bad guy uses at the end.
Whoah whoah whoah!
This movie actually had merchandising?
I did a Google Image search on the Market sponsored robot, the Matsumoto-14 and I saw a model of it which was distrubuted in Japan. They actually had toys of this in the US during when the movie came out?
