    Anybody notice this Robot & Box mix up.

    It is easy to reposition Mr. Mercury's arms, they can be eased upwards or downwards individually by moving them against the pressure of a spring, they then slot into a new position. I believe Astroman's arms are fixed in position. Here is a photo of the 1st version inside.

    Perhaps like me some of you have been bidding on this very nice boxed Horikawa Rotator Robot, that has been ended early yet again. It reached $786, reserve not reached, relisted then cancelled, relisted again and cancelled.  I know the seller can do what they want and has probably been offered a price and sold off ebay, still annoying. No doubt we will see it again some time in the future.

    Hi Horror1o1, check out this link to one of my old post about a Rotate-O-Matic with a similar problem, a longish threat but might be some useful info and images.

    Could this be the problem part, the drive shaft glued to the panel behind?
    I think the robot will have to be dismantled so that the shaft can isolated from the internal workings so it can be forced round with grips to break the bond with the panel, Not tried that sort of thing myself but I feel it might work. Of course a new gear will be required, perhaps there is a repro gear made.

    Hi Mark, there is already a video section that Brian created some time ago - http://danefield.com/alpha/forums/forum/56-robot-videos/

    Here are some photos I put together which show the variations of an original ARM

    Congrats Ranger, looks great, you are a member of a select group now. I would be tempted to fit some repro lower arms from TTT, not sure though, might not be the right thing to do.
  12. MetalRobotHead added a post in a topic: Plummeting Mechanized Robby Robot Values   

    This has probably been mentioned before, the value and prices achieved for the Mechanized Robby Robot on a gradual spiral downwards as more and more of them are coming out of hiding, this only realised only $542 the seller being Zoomer7 a well known and respected toy dealer. OK it had one or two problems, needed a new drive belt and a flat spot wheel, but it is the knurled button knob battery door version and looks to be in pretty nice condition. Looks like somebody has got themselves a bargain, unfortunately not me, mostly due to the end time here in the UK (02:21 am) and me wrongly assuming it would go a lot higher.

    Is this the one - although it is from 2004, perhaps there is another, a bit more up to date.

    Which wire diameter did you buy Ian, was it 0.63. 0.8 or 1.0 mm, I am thinking which would give the most lift off, that is after I have fitted the new repro rocket posts I have just ordered from Classic Tin Toy company, my Rocket man is receiving far too much attention, better be worth it, I am sure it will be, oh to see my Rocket Man launch a rocket and with its newly revolving antenna fixed at last.

    Thanks for the heads up on the ebay listing David. It seems there are 3 UK members on the look out for Rocket Man springs, funkrobotic, chilli and myself, but I see the springs in this ebay listing quote shiiping to the UK at $61, perhaps a message to the seller to confirm shipping price is needed, seems way over the top for a small spring.
