This is great John, thanks for postin them. I have the main three...Zyrak, Zobor and Zintar. They all work, as long as the motor works. I have to constantly clean them to get the carbon off the shaft where the contacts tough. Once I clean them, they work great. But it only takes a few weeks for more to build up. I wish there was a way to keep them clean. But I had Zyrak originally when I was a kid. These are some of the coolest plastic robots. I got them all from Ebay and they needed some refurbishing especially the treads. They aren't cheap, but between some headlights and replacement motor covers, they are up to par. They fit perfectly with that lunar lander Darryl gave me at Botstock. Thanks again for posting these.

Thanks for the Patent info John...

Ken, that lunar lander looks awesome ! You asked me at Botstock
if Zeroids would fit in it. I knew you would find a great use for it.
That lander made a nice display piece at the two exhibits I did in
2005 and 2009. You now own a piece of local history... rolleyes.gif

I used part of the original design drawing for one of the guys in the title picture of the "Toy Technical Drawings and Blueprints" article (2nd page) on the ToyMemories.com site... (I can't remember where I filed the original scan, though!), and I'm too tired at the moment to remember which guy this was... laugh.gif , but the pic is shown below... this was from before the Z's took over, and they were simply "robot #1", "robot #2", and "robot #3"...
(I have other design and part drawings in the archives, kind of buried... will try and post others if/when they show themselves)
