Hell yeah I saw this in the theatre when I was a kid! It was like a dream come true, as I always wanted to see giant mechs on screen... I'm glad to know that I personally contributed to it's $1.3 Million take at the BO!

 I'm not sure I agree in that Robot Jox was an influential film.  It gets kudos for being one of the first giant mech live action films, but itself was directly influenced by many anime films and series, the most obvious being Gundam.  Pacific Rim is based more on anime as well, particularly shows from classic anime master Go Nagi and his piloted mechs vs monsters shows like Mazinger Z.  Del Toro has said time and again that Pacific Rim is his love song to Japanese science fiction, and I clearly see its influences...but I don't see them coming from Jox itself.

Loved, loved, LOVED this movie. I remember being disappointed that the nearby video store had only one copy and I wasn't able to get it for my 10th birthday.

Crash & Burn!!
