    Hi Joe K. or whoever is the seller/custodian of these Space Robots, Just wondered if the powers-that-be could reserve one of the black Space Robots for me? I'll pay for mine of course. This is a big time memory for me (I can still smell the melted plastic)! I used to BEG my parents for money whenever I saw one of the Mold-A-Matic machines and had just about every type of figurine made! Mostly the souvenir ones that I found at tourist sites, museums, etc. SADLY, not a single one survived my parents' oven-like attic next to my boxed Machine Man, TV Spaceman, Cragstan Astronaut, and original Mr. Mercury!!! Oh well, I'll be sure to preserve one from BS XI if I can get my grubby hands on one! Thanks for any help! Bob S.

    Hi Doc,

    Great to visit with you at the NEAF Astronomy Show! Sorry I ddn't reply sooner. It always amazes me what a truly small world it is...

    Astro toys and Astronomy "toys" just go to prove the notion that boys never outgrow their passion for stuff!

    Very nice photos and I love the effect that the lens has in bringing the viewers attention to an item.

    Anyway, glad to make the connection at NEAF.

    Alas, my Machineman found a new home in Switzerland, I believe, a few years ago (documented in the DVD entitled "Unwound"). But I can confirm that there is no litho on his back. Just like Joe said, only red paint!

    Please post some photos when you get yours done, I'd love to see it!

    My 4 tin robot treasures from childhood were the original Mr. Mercury (metal arms), Cragstan Astronaut, Alps Television Robot (original metal antenna version), and of course my Machine Man. Without a doubt my Alps Television Robot was my favorite, so I'm with plan3b on this one. One of the saddest memories of playing with a toy when I was young was the day that I watched in horror as the moving scene on the "TV" completely tore apart! Worst part was that it tore through the BEST part of the scene! Needless to say I immediately took the robot apart and used the now reviled regular household tape to tape the tear back together. Wow did that tape yellow over the years! Wow were those metal tabs weak! Wow did that ruin the value of my favorite robot, both then and now! Wow did my LEAST favorite robot make up for it! :D

    As a side note, my favorite Alps Television Robot is on display at Joe's Toy Robot Museum where he is still appreciated even if no longer MIB!

    I'll second that motion. After 3 or 4 tries, (and being told to re-vote after each one), I personally visited with Joe today and OFFICIALLY registered for all things related to "Botstock IV"...

    Good Luck to the rest of you, but Polls or No Polls, I'm IN!!!!!!! ;)

    Wow, thanks much, Jay! Great idea to poll the BBQ guests for their meal choices!

    "SWAG by size" - what a concept... :D

    Thanks!

    Joe, I hope you mean that I will be "hard at work" on SATURDAY evening for the BBQ since the proposed pre-event dinner at "Johnny's" will be on Friday....

    Although maybe you just want me elsewhere on Friday. Hmmmm?

    :o

    Joe, I have a Kodak 8mm Moviedeck (shows both 8mm formats, but not sound) that I can loan you. Since I'm close by it might save someone having to lug one cross-country! Let me know...

    Here are some photos from Joe's exhibit at the "Mad Science" day. The kids (and adults) really enjoyed the toy robot displays and Joe was an excellent host!

    Hi Joe,

    Even I saw this and wondered for a second what was up? :blink:

    But I actually had a heads up from the North Museum folks that you would be down there with "Unwound" on display. I'm a member of the museum and had successfully hidden my "celebrity" from them until you ratted me out with a copy of the DVD! :D

    Hope you have a good crowd, it gets crazy-busy some times for the small place that it is!
