What a great stage to be in your collecting - having most of what you are interested in and being able to add those "unobtainable" dream pieces.
You've been having a great year!!!
Xris - I thought you already have a Roboter 700?

First the box and now - unexpected - the robot. I don´t know a better one than you for gettting a Robot 700.
Btw How many 700s do exist? Are there 4 of them?
Es kracht und zischt, der Roboter macht nischt. Er kam vom Mars, und das war´s!

I'm sure you are very happy that you never sold that box.
It must have been in the stars that they were meant to
come together. Enjoy your vacation and tell us a good story
when you return...

I am very happy for you and for the collectors world of robots that another sample of this super rare robot has found its way to the surface.
What a coincidence that you especially you got the Robot with a box waiting after all those years living in a foreign country.
The robot looks beautiful, even some parts are missing.
Is it still working ?
I have seen this robot only once in reality in now 28 years of robot collecting in another collection in Germany.
That one was found on a local flea market without box and broken antenna as well.
The robot previously shown with the box standing on a table in a garden was originally owned by Ive Taniou in France in the early 80s and was sold to a collector in the States (I guess in the late 80s ?).
I have to ask Ive about it.
Dirk, keep us informed about your story and background about this robot. I might add some small information from my side.
