Did You Know?
When "Hardware Wars" was released on home video in the early '80s, it was included on a compilation called "Hardware Wars and Other Film Farces", which also featured Closet Cases of the Nerd Kind
(1982), Bambi Meets Godzilla
(1969), and Porklips Now
(1980) (also by Erie Fosselius). This version of the short (the one distributed by Pyramid Films) had one minor edit: the image of a nude model, which is seen briefly as various technical drawings are being shown on the screen during the "exciting pre-battle briefing" scene. See more
Enjoy intense drama during the pre-battle briefing scene.
Okay, so what you want to do is this: You want to attack at the most vulnerable spot. Come at it from this angle and locate the automatic flip-flop override device here, which in turn will defuse the antigyroscopic preinterface thruster chamber, and the pneumatic centripetal antigravity shield deflectors, then you simply deactivate the axial gyro-presubinertia-photomegatronic oscillator that you see here.
You pull the plug!
