"Real Steel" is an action drama about a former boxer (Hugh Jackman) who, against all odds, gets one last shot at a comeback when he teams up with his estranged son (Dakota Goyo) to build and train the perfect contender for the new high-tech sport of robot boxing.

This is the next generation of robots!

Presenting world-class fighting robots, the greatest mechanical boxers assembled for the World Robot Boxing league.

Promo Posters

These posters appeared on the streets for only one week before and after the movie premiere.

Phone booths and bus stops have fluorescent backlights behind these durable translucent posters to bring out the bright colors. The eyes have a menacing glow at night.

Viral Marketing Poster

Source

A 'viral marketing poster' that was sent to the first users of the World Robot Boxing website. This is my favorite poster with the cool chinese characters and the high-contrast profile view.

I ordered each of these sets and they are all printed thick paper stock. The double-sided posters are my favorite. The shadow of the image on the opposite side does not show through the thick paper. TheNoisy Boy is getting scarce.

      Why do these toys interest kids ? Mostly boys perhaps ? Why ? Congrads on reaching Squidoo level 60. Conversations helps with new creativity and deeper thinking. Thanks.
