A Bitter Message of Hopeless Grief

Survival Research Labs pioneered robot mayhem long before "BattleBots."
No miniatures:  real cinderblocks,  full size monsters, real 2x12's and the world's largest flame thrower.

This was their only attempt to create a complete world - the dark everyday life of these strange creatures,  hence an ironic comment on our own.
Undoubtedly the strangest project I ever worked on and one of the most fun.
