    Congrats Bill - a nice purchase.
    I would prefer to take the battery compartment off and replace it to the leg section first.
    ... a drop of clear epoxy should do it....
    Then you can check easily without the Body, if he runs correctly - and have a free view to the
    rotating contacts underneeth the battery compartment.
    Please checks the wheels and inside legs correctly - and use not so heavy modern batteries...
    Replacing the Body section later on is a bit tricky...but not too difficult!
    Good luck!

    Will upload a short movie for you....

    Hi Johan,
    great site and introduction - HartelijkWelkom to alphadrome and thanks for sharing your Information on your fantastic site!!!
    When I started out more than 25 years ago - I couldn't imagine, that it would be possible to get some of the nicest robots.
    Visiting Gernot. Henk & Xris for the first time in these early days, makes me feel like a dumbo...
    But everything is possible. Not easy to find all the robots you are dreaming of. It may take some time - but if you try hard enough, you will succeed in the end!
    Great start with a Door Robot, ST1 and Atomic Robot Man! Good Luck for the future!

    Of course - on your command Chilli!

    First Picture shows the frontside of the best Repro I have ever seen on the left side + the Original on the right side. I know the man who made these - he made a new metal mold and the antenna is nearly better, than the original. Just a bit too new, very sharp and very clean on the front. The colour is nearly perfect, but a Little bit too light and a bit more pink, than the original.

    Second Picture Show both from the backside. The Original on the right side has mold marks at 3, 6, 9 & 12 o'clock. But the Repro shows also some more in between. I spoke to the maker and he told me, He had done this to get the best result. His plan was to built the perfect Repro, but he didn't want to cheat anybody. You can buy these for around 35,- Euros from him.

    Kind Regards, Dirk

    BTW... Sorry Chilli. The last Astroman antenna you posted here, is very very well made. (I know, who make these near perfect repros here in Germany) But sorry again - this is not an original DUX antenna...
