Apologies for my delay in getting pictures uploaded for you all to see, I have been having a technology disaster. I am going away for a couple of weeks shortly, so will endeavour to get the pictures uploaded when I return. Thanks again to all for all your kind words and understanding.
Many thanks for all your kind words, and to answer a couple of questions we live in Pontefract (yes - as in Pontefract Cakes!!) Yorkshire, England. John (Hoserflash) was just 46 years old when he passed away.
I'll try and upload pictures of the robots at the weekend. I think I know what most of them are - but if you guys could confirm then that would be great. Also if you could give me an idea of how you would rate their condition and give me some idea of rough values that would also be much appreciated. I'm 99.9% sure that they are all genuine old robots, as the repro robots never got the privilige of living in the 'special' cabinets!!!
It is with a heavy heart that I am considering re-homing them as they do hold great sentimental value to me, John was a real robot nut!! I just feel that they would be better cared for by an equally avid robot nut and enjoyed to their full, as they are meant to be.
I am Hoserflash's partner and have logged onto his account - remarkably I'm able to remember his details. It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I need to tell you all that Hoserflash passed away suddenly and unexpectedly two years ago. Since that date I have been the custodian of his beloved robot collection.
Although I am a fan the robots, which have great sentimental value to me, I feel now is the time to consider letting them go to homes where they are really loved and appreciated by Hoserflash's fellow robot fans.
I just wondered if any of you can give me some advice as to the best way of selling them - is Ebay the way to go? Private sales, or private auction?
Any help and advice would me much appreciated, as I am sure you can appreciate, this is a difficult decision to make.
Wow thats plenty vintage for me!...Imaging it on a quality print T shirt it would look superb. Now is it just my eyes at this late hour, or with all those fine circular lines does it also resemble a vintage postage stamp?
Hi Marco...A BIG BIG WELCOME!!! from a very autumnal but sunny Yorkshire (England). Only two years collecting?, well Im blown out of the picture for sure, :huh: you have got a full "gang" line up!!, that is pretty remarkable by anyones standards. Please let me know what hours you are out of the house at work, so I can come round and steal your Radicon....only joking. :D
Joe K...I have since buying mine, been aware that there was a tin footed variant, but heck a was not aware of two versions of both tin feet and plastic. Thanks for the info.....Every days a school day. ;)
Nice one tinplate ;) ...yes I just love mine too, the litho on the torso especially the back is pure eye candy. Try running him with the lights off, that lighted piston room is quite something indeed. :)
