Breaking News! A massive robot of unknown origin has appeared in the Sacramento area.
About this creation
The vast machine is of humanoid shape and seems to be unarmed. It is unknown where the robot has originated from or what its intentions are, but speculation tends towards it being either extraterrestrial origin or some sort of German/North Korean super weapon. The military is taking no chances. We've been told that the army is beginning an offensive for an preemptive strike on the Giant before it can accomplish whatever nefarious mission it is up to.
... Wait! We've just received word that the robot is undergoing some sort of transformation. It would seem that the army's initial attack with tanks and F-86 Sabers was unsuccessful and only served to enrage the giant. Apparently, it has some sort of beam weapons in its hands and tentacles sprouted from the giant's back, and it's currently rampaging through downtown destroying all in it's path!
We've been told we need to move to a safer location so we'll have to sign off shortly, but we can tell you that the navy has been authorized to use a battleship off shore to bombard to robotic menace. * massive explosions in the distance * Surely their 17 inch guns will be able to take it down, right? This is WCF-W signing off!
The German Empire denies having such weapon.
I loved the animations used in the film. Especially in it's Cold War setting which highlights the origin of Retro futurism (A favorite theme of mine)
