Yes, Folks, that's

AND those shiny stainless steel TEETH can clamp down with 20,000 pounds of force!
ROBOSAURUS is the most incredible man made monster ever conceived. He was designed to grip, lift, crush, burn, bite and throw his victims - full size cars and airplanes around with ease! ROBOSAURUS is the largest fully articulated, fully mobile entertainment robot ever built.
This 40 foot tall electrohydromechanical monster robot weighs 58,000 pounds and is totally controlled by a human pilot strapped inside the monster's head - just like the imaginary TRANSFORMER and GOBOT toys.
ROBOSAURUS was invented by Doug Malewicki in 1988. Doug founded a company called MONSTER ROBOTS, INC. and his USA Design and Utility Patents on the machine are assigned to that company. The name ROBOSAURUS also has USA Trademark protection. Robosaurus was built in one and a half years for $2.2 million. ROBOSAURUS did his first show in January of 1990 and has been performing all over the United States and Canada ever since. In 1999 ROBO went to Australia for a second time.
Burn it, bite it and toss it to the ground!
