    Hello, have a new addition to my robot family:



    Never thought this one was even taller than a Lavender ...

    He's all original, complete and working, but the rockets do not shoot.
    Anyone has details of how the spring mechanism works ?
    There is a spring inside the rocket, but it seems to sit too deep in the rocket.

    Hello,

    Maybe I can help in the discussion.
    I noticed that at the bottom of the battery compartment the connectors for the batteries are not round as with my original thunder:

    mine:


    ebay one:



    I must say I didn't find any other differences except for the logos on the feet.


    greetings,

    Hello,

    Made a movie of the Thunder in full action and posted it on Youtube as I didn't find one of an original ASUKA on the tube yet ...

    Hello,


    When I visited the offices of the Belgian distribution company JAVA near to Leuven, I noticed this frames on the wall with a collection of old toy catalogs the company edited in the 50's and 60's.

    Mind the Space Bus ! I couldn't make up however from which edition it originated.





    Grtz

    Hello,

    There is a new gangmember in my collection: Thunder Robot !!!
    One of my most wanted robots.

    He's a real beauty



    He looks original vintage



    The antenna seems also original (been looking in old threats), not ?

    with or without my children's inheritance ?

    Strictly from the early 90's, but I bought a lot of plastic 80's stuff then.
    Beginning of 2000 I sold mostly everything and started buying Horikawa 5 years later.
    Bought a lot of 50-60's Jap tin of which some space & robots 5 years ago and sold all Horikawa's 3 years ago.
    Beginning of this year decided to go for less but more iconic robots.

    2 new arrivals are foreseen next week...

    After that I'm broke, have only 1 kidney left and my wife lives with the children at her parents again ;o)

    Hello,

    Thank you all for your warm welcome !

    I got myself a MIB Computer robot from Bandai.
    This is a great futuristic robot, knowing it is from the 60's, not ? A bit visionary in my opinion.



    1 question. If you would have to choose between a Tullip and Cragstan Talking. Both in the same good condition. Which one would you buy ?

    Greetings.

    Hello,

    Here you can see where my nick name comes from.

    PS: The blue Horikawa was my first robot bought on a flee market for 5 € 20 years ago

    I've rejoined the forum after more than one year with a new accountname as I couldn't find my old login and password anymore. My old one was robotmaker.

    Could you please delete the old one ?
