    They had to be in the right positions for it to work.

    You can try a small amount of fingernail polish remover. It has acetone in it and that can desolve super glue. Try Cutex.
    It has a blue color.

    Thanks Brian, It's for the Japanese Market so maybe someone can translate.

    One of the phrases it says (In Peter Weller's Robocop voice) is "Dead or Alive, you're coming with me".

    I think it's directly taken from the movie.

    I can see the initials "O T P" on the box.

    That piece that comes off looks like it has a crack in it. It might have been held tighter to the shaft in the center. The upper half is supposed
    to rotate around. you might try and superglue that piece to the shaft and see what happens. you could also fill the gap inside with epoxy.

    I think someone was making the old style goop because the New one, that used a lightbulb for a heat source, had a
    different mix of latex that dried quicker and with less heat than the old style. I tried the new goop in an old mold and
    before it dried, it burned up. Too Much heat from the old "Hot Plate".

    Try searching old style goop.

    I am trying to get more information on this robot.

    It is Made in China for the Japanese Market. It must be from around

    1987 because it speaks dialog from Robocop. Nice Action for a China Robot.
    Arms move up and down, gears in chest rotate,dome lights up when you are
    using the remote, eyes and mouth light up,clear transparent body,moves forward and turns in reverse.
    Very Heavy too.

    I just want to know it's name and see the box.

    Thanks

    it's a marriage of two Chinese toys. Baby Bot and Futura Cycle.

    I made one and painted the Robby Black and it looks better.

    I found Alphadrome in 1997 when I finally got a PC. It was from Claranet and it was a blue background with white text.
    there were no photos or videos. It was just text. I think Brian had made a website and let people comment about the
    site. Then someone asked a question and all hell broke loose !!!

    What is this piece above the Battery Box ? It looks like a round hole red and yellow. but what did it do ? I also notice there is only 2

    wires going to the motor. One from the battery box and one soldered to the frame. Everything else is mechanical !

  11. SH MIKE added a post in a topic: Horikawa Prototype Version ?   

    What I see is a modifacation of an existing Robot. It looks like instead of a gear to open the doors, they are using a piece of heavy sand paper (Maybe from a Drimmle Tool) to open the doors. It is moving against a gear but there are no teeth on it ?
    You can see the standard 2 gear system. When It walks, the gear is lower and moves the feet. When the gear rises, it engages
    the upper mechanism and then the sandpaper disk rotates around the gear opening the doors and showing a scene that is not there anymore.

    I wonder if John Rigg is going through his junk bin right now ?

    I think they are using existing robots (from that era) and modifying them. Why start from scratch? From the other Yahoo Auctions, it seems that Metal House is going out of business and they are liquidating everything they find in the warehouse. There should be lots of prototypes showing up. This one looks like there should have been a scene showing when the doors open up. I don't think they were intending to have just the guts showing.

    So the designer of Atomic Robot Man died in the war ? WWII ? That would be before 1945 !

    Then I guess we are to believe that someone else made them in 1949 ?

    And of course, Lilliput was made in 1935 and the logo did not change a bit for 20 years ?

    There might be a DVD with Extras that has that episode on it. I seem to remember seeing that when I was looking up Robby Robot Chess.

    It might be in one of the Special Forbidden Planet DVDs or Blue Ray discs.

    Maybe the original idea of the head opening up on the Rocketman was so it could look forward when it was rolling forward on its chest ?
