    Sad but true, I will not be able to attend Botstock this year.
    Life has gotten too busy again and something had to give...
  2. Robotnut added a post in a topic: Leonard Nimoy Died Today At Age 83   

    I found out about Leonard Nimoy yesterday at work and choked up a bit. Like the rest of you guys, watched every episode MANY times. Had all the toys and still do. Liked him in Mission Impossible, but not quite as much. Really enjoyed "In Search Of", a series recently revived by William Shatner as "Wierd or What". Back in the 60's, my favorite toy was Captain Lazer, see www.captainlazer.com, who I always thought of as Spock. The Spock character, was so far ahead of it's time, that it made such an impact on so many. Last night I drank a few Romulan Ales and watched several original episoded. The kids and I watched "Mirror Mirror", "Amok TIme", and "Spock's Brain". Back in the early 80's, I met and had a great conversation with William Shatner. Trying not to be too much of a geek, I still had to ask him about Leonard Nimoy. He told me that Leonard was nothing like the Spock character in real life. While Nimoy was intelligent and creative, he was also incredibly funny and loved to have a good time.

    About 10 years ago, the topic of "Mint on Card" toys came up here and I put this little stop motion together. While Spock wouldn't get the humor, I hope Leonard would...

    Thanks for the info, you guys are great !!!

    Don, it's funny how you mention how memory has a way of tricking you.
    All I remembered was that there was this space themed lunch box for
    $24000. I was actually thinking it had Superman and the Robot on it,
    boy I was wrong. So here I was at one of our local resale shops and
    on a bottom shelf I see this lunchbox. Not being an expert on lunchboxes,
    I instantly thought I had found the holy grail. Getting it home, I immediately
    went to the internet, only to find out it is quite common. There's actually
    one BIN on eBay for $60, with the Thermos...

    At one of the earlier Botstocks at Joe's Robot Museum,
    a dealer was displaying a $24000 lunch box. Does anyone
    remember it, or have a picture ? I almost heard angels
    when I saw this one at a local resale shop for $10.
    Unfortunately it is not the $24000 lunchbox, but it is
    from the 1950's and very cool...

    Very nice group Maimo65 !!!

    Oop's almost forgot. I did get this vintage Christmas record,
    to play on my 1965 Magnavox "Portable" HiFi.

    Even though it weighs 70lbs, it is portable, see the handle...

    John, you did say, "So What Did Santa Bring You ?"
    No vintageTOYs this year, but Santa did bring me this...
    It is "Made in Japan", if that counts...

    Thanks Dave, Joe, Morbius Mike and whoever else had a hand in making this possible...

    Dirk it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy, my friend.
    This is a case of Karma. Who else would have had the
    knowlege, appreciation and to be at that place and time.

    Just imagine if this Robot went from the boot sale to some
    4 year old kid's sand box. It would have been great if some
    young kid had and loved this toy and kept it until he was old.
    Unfortunately, this child would have likely tossed it aside for
    a new video game...

    As we walked through the Doll exhibit at the Chicago Toy Show,
    Robert bellows "DOLLS who the HELL collects DOLLS" !!!

    I then found out that he was once president of the New York
    Doll Collectors Society...

  14. Robotnut added a post in a topic: Atom Rocket 7   

    Yes there are quite a few differences and that is the switch.
    The side jets are different, so is the color of the name Atom Rocket 7.
    All of my space toys have been boxed up for over 4 years, so I really
    can't remember what I have. I have a 20 by 40ft room in the basement
    that will someday be the toy room, when I get all the other jobs done.
    Here are a few more from the old house...

    Here's mine, with a different litho and a tin headed spaceman.
    I can't see in your picture, but does your Spaceman have a tin or rubber head...
