Keeping with a theme, here’s an ad from Superman #284 that promises the plans to build your own 7 foot tall robot! Just think, you could turn the fantasy of the Doctor Fate story you just read in today’s Latest News into a chilling reality! And all for a measly $1!
Here’s the ingredients required – scrap metal, 18x24 inch blueprint, a human being to operate the robot from inside… wait a second! Hold on here! What kind of crappy robot is this? The robot isn’t walking or carrying things, YOU ARE! A metal suit you wear is NOT a robot, it’s a freaking costume!
So let’s review. For $1 you get the plans to build your own metal coffin – I mean robot costume – I mean robot. You know, eBay sells tons of stuff each day, but I bet no one is selling blueprints for scrap robots. There’s a niche market for you, if you’re interested.
