Each year for my birthday I try to gift myself with a special robot for my collection. This year..thanks to Marco...I finally found and added Nando to my robo family. Been searching for one for years and now I can finally scratch him off my want list. Here is a pic from the ebay listing.
I'm looking for a professional model builder who can paint and assemble my meditating Tetsujin model. It is a large scale resin model 15" tall in lotus position. If any Alphadromers could recommend a good builder I would really appreciate it. The attached pic is of a completed model.
Received the robot in the mail today. To my surprise it was even smaller than what I thought. Measuring in at 1 1/4" only it opens up like a locket to reveal it's detailed inner workings. Definitely the smallest bot in my collection. No maker's mark though
There is a Batman Robot up for sale on eBay that the seller is claiming as being from the '60s & Japanese. The same pic appears in the following blog from 2007 http://tomztoyz.blogspot.com/2007/03/batman-tin-toy-robots-vintage-1960s.html . According to the blog this was a custom piece sold on eBay. Just sayin"....
It is time for the unveiling of the 2011 Robo Creche. This year the Daleks won the chance to play the characters in the "live" nativity. As Daleks would have it they wanted to keep things simple as they celebrated the birth of the Hybrid Sec. Merry X-Mas to you all!!!
Dalek Caan: Report.Dalek Jast: Dalek Sec is entering the final stage of evolution.Dalek Caan: Scan him. Prepare for birth.Dalek Caan: You will bear witness. This is the dawn of a new age. We are the only four Daleks in existence. So the species must evolve; a life outside the shell. The children of Skaro must walk again!Hybrid Sec : I.....am....a human.......Dalek! I........am.........your future!
