Here is the Ron Cobb Record jacket that Dan O'Bannon had in the 1970's. Dan was convinced because of this piece that Cobb was to be the one to design the Dark Star

    I love these nostalgic posts. 😀 That Terminator tank is awesome. And I didn’t know you designed Arkham Asylum for Batman Forever. I was happy when I read the book (did that before I saw the movie) and found out they were *finally* having Arkham in a movie. And when I saw it on screen I was so awestruck. Too bad they cut out the scene from the beginning of the movie where Two Face breaks out of Arkham. But that makes the final reveal towards the end of the movie more breathtaking, I guess. 🙂

    For a moment there, I thought someone was building WALL-E. Boy, that ended being a little wrong.

    The T-2 sort of reminds me of the failed “Robby the Robot” that was made for the first Nintendo. But this one’s out for revenge!😀

    Top Gun!! Another classic! “I feel the need – the need for speed!”

    The Arkham Asylum model is brilliant! Too bad Madame Insanity didn’t make the cut! Must have hit too close to home for one of the producers or the director! Haha!

    The T2 tank was one bad, bad motha! I always wished that we had been able to see more of the future in that movie.
