    How would you put this together without instructions? Yikes?

    You should countersue him for extortion! From what I have heard and read, this guy has been harassing and scamming our community for years.

    Dog is Man's Best Friend! Why would some horrible person actually try to have this auction closed?

    This piece definitely works. I don't care what parts are from where. It is simply a nice Astronaut and an easy price on the wallet.

    I'm a Lost in Space Fan, and this is the best toy out yet! Very classy rendition!

    I think Patrol Robot happens to be one of the nicest in this series and reminiscent of the Patrol Robot from the Kitahara Museum which gives it legitimacy as being far more than just a Smoker. It's been said a 1000 times before by all of us collectors, "buy what you like" but why knock what other people like just because you don't?

    Excellent! Looking forward to all the different versions?

    I just saw one of these guys for $99. auction. There is also the TV variation, and I remember a gear version. A fairly new toy.

    That is funny David! I guess I have egg on my face now!

    Sounds like this topic has become a biased opinion of who's their favorite designer. Like Dr. Atomic said, Mr. Mercury is not appealing to him, but it is to others. I personally like Diamond Planet, but many people hate it.

    Chief Robotman, Radical Robot, Mr. Chief, Chief Smoky, Mighty Robot, etc, etc, are some of the most desireable robots. Do you think people in the 1950's said, yeah, that was the robot KO sold last year but they only changed the color, or all they did was change the head? I doubt anyone said anything like this, because they were just $5 toys back then. Now that robot collecting has become a world wide phenomena, all of the sudden everyone thinks what they make is the best. It's all good as long as it is a robot.

    Wouldn't it be nice if Alphadrome maintains a positive force to promote our great hobby which we are all very passionate about and obviously opinionated, rather than a personal place to put down others. How about we embrace every one of these designers, manufacturers or whatever you want to call them which includes mainly Riggs, Papasan, Schylling, Metal House, OTTI, and of course Gosses.

    PS. My 2 favorite designs of the year are Riggs Laughing Robot and Papasan Patrol Robot. The oddest design - Metal House's Hex Head.

    I agree with you Doc. I think it is interesting and at least it's not another repro. A little expensive for me, but they're sold out anyway, so I don't have to make any decisions.

    The Cam 10's are amazing. Their movement is great for its size.

    I remember there was a gold version earlier this year that sold for around $400.

    What is the Gang of Five head made out of, tin? What kind of light show in the chest?
