I have always been a fan of science fiction, mostly TV. The first real sci fi show I got into was Fireball XL5. They had a robot and I immediately developed an interest in Robots. Locally we had a morning kids TV show called Rocket Ship 7. They played Warner Brother cartoons, Three Stooges and Superman. The host had a robot companion named Promo the Robot. Once again, I loved the Robot. THEN...Lost in Space premiered. I remember watchng the beginning, the tour of the Jupiter 2. The camera hit the Robot and I screamed THEY GOT A ROBOT. Keep in mind, I was eight. As I got older, I got interested in Star Trek which seems to think they are too advanced for robots, but there was Nomad. Then Star Wars came out loaded with Droids, and other sci fi. Thus my love for Robots was nurtured and grew. But there was other sci fi and action out there that didn't have robots, but they had things and equipment with really cool designs, like the Barris Batmobile. Phasers, communicators, tricorders, ark reactors, space ships, uniforms, etc...being an artist, I can appreciate all thought put into those designs. I built a lot of models as a kid, and still do, but not the standard car, but ships and things. So I decided to collect robots. I have a bunch, though nothing like some of the guys here. But as time goes by, I am atarting to pick up other movie and TV props. My recent acquisitions are my Adam West cowl, Christmas Story BB Gun and Leg Lamp, as well as two ark reactors from the Iron Man moivies and a metal helmet. So even though robots are my priority, other things interest me. My house is being over run, so either I stop, or get a bigger house. I am glad to be here and feed the need of my robot interests.
