I been collecting these little robots for a while

I just love the friendly expression of these fellows

made by PlayTime in 1986, they come in different shapes ans sizes

some are wind up and others battery operated

I been looking for the "MUSIC BOT" with no luck

Also "STANLEY THE ROBOT" is the one that I haven't seen in Auction ever

or pictures of him somewhere, looks like the tallest of this series

I hope you like them as much as me.

AstroG.

Over the years I have found some Knock offs of these fellows

Like the "SmartBot" and the "MystaBot"

made in Taiwan, they are pretty much the same Bots

Just with different Box, Name and Decals.

these are the pictures.

My son and I collected these along with the more sophisticated TOMY robots back in the 80's and 90's. As for the Stanley robot I have one in a box that I bought through an ad in Toy Shop Newspaper. That is the only one I have ever seen or heard of anybody having. You can see a picture of it and the patent drawings in this post by John Rigg:

Some place in the Alphadrome old threads you will find a thread on these robots that documents them all, As I recall Joe K. and I both shared information in that thread as well as others. if you find it you might add a link too it from this thread and add a link to this thread from the old one to tie them all together.

Firstly, thanks for the pics.

This is my first post on Alphadrome. I've been started collecting some 80's plastic robots and Playtime series is one of my wish list.

I've got a Gyrobot and one of awesome in my opinion is the Skate bot that I've got it with fine condition in box last year.

I just look in details and think that I only found Chaty Freddie (Playbot 700) once in Ebay and never seen giant Stanley been posted before.

the Pink Robot was made in Taiwan and not licensed by PlayTime.

Am still looking for the Big Stanley the Robot with NO luck.

Here is a robot that has been in my collection for over 20 years. It is a playtime robot that I have never seen anywhere else. I had the box but I think over the course of a few moves it will take some more digging to find it. This is a gundam type robot that uses one c-cell battery but what makes this guy exceptional is that he is a pin-walker.

I have the "knock-off" version of this one, Tom. It's exactly the same, except it doesn't have the Playtime sticker on the remote control.

It's called Astro Warrior by CIBA INDUSTRIAL CO., LTD., China, 1985. It comes with a shield and gun. I believe the Playtime version did, too.

Joe, is it the same color? This robot came with shield and gun also but as with the box I cannot find the gun.

The CIBA version is gold, gray and black instead of white, gray and black.

I'll look around the attic. I'm pretty sure I have the Playtime version boxed away up there.

That's it, John! Big box, small robot.

I was hesitant to buy this one back in the eighties because, to me, it just wasn't "robot" enough; too humanoid looking. But, I did. Glad so, now.

I'll try and have photos posted of the the "knock-off" version and (totally different) box.
