    My ST-1's arrived today, and I love them, especially the Alphadrome Special Edition. Thank you, Volker! They are true gems. Really looking forward to the silver robot with the cart.

    That's great news, Brian. I'm really looking forward to getting mine too. Sounds like a real gem.

    Thanks for the great news. I can't wait to see this sparking little gem in person. Hopefully, the production models will arrive soon.

    I love your collection and those ikea display cases showcase your pieces wonderfully. I aways enjoy seeing your robots on this board.

    The consensus seems to be that oversaturation of the market with repros hurts the value of the originals. With this in mind, it might be wise to wait on purchasing an original robot, which is slated to be mass produced since you might be able to pick up the original at a reduced price later. I was thinking about bidding on that BO blue Planet Robot on Ebay, but now I'm afraid that if the Chinese manufactuers decide to clone it extensively in the future that it might consequently reduce its value.

    Just out of curiosity, how many of you think that reproing increases interest in collecting?

    With all the reproductions out, I was wondering how it has affected the market price of the original robots.

    Congrats, RPHR! I'd like to see more pictures of your wonderful space car after you receive it. It really looks great!

    Kinda looks like an alien cyborg who's a bit anorexic. Maybe it's because he's missing his lower jaw. :D An interesting looking character. I like it.

    I'm currently in the market for these and was wondering what the going price is for C-9 or better specimens--with and without the box.

    Thanks everyone for your feedback on Guy Antique Gallery in Japan. Because of your favorable testimonials, I decided to go ahead with my purchase with them. However, the robot I was originally interested in was on hold for someone else who didn't show up, and therefore, Moktar offered it to me. Now, the original guy is planning to go through with the deal this weekend, so I probably won't be getting it. I guess a little competition always helps motivate people.

    Anyway, they have many other nice items on their site, and now I know that I can buy with confidence from Guy Antique Gallery.

    I'm thinking about making a purchase from Guy Antique Gallery in Japan; however, I wanted to get some feedback regarding the reliablity of this business. So if anyone has purchased anything from Moktar and Guy Antique Gallery, I'd like to hear about your experiences with them.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not an expert, but I think it's better to wrap the box. I had some record albums that I had purchased in the 1970's, which I placed in mylar protective sleeves since new. Recently, I took my record collection out of storage. The ones in the mylar sleeves looked brand new--no yellowing and bright graphics--even after 30 years! The ones that were not in the sleeves had some yellowing and looked "vintage." Therefore, I think it's probably better to wrap the boxes in some type of safe plastic or mylar.
