Identifying These Robots
Posted 17 June 2012 - 07:32 AM
I'm a graphic designer for theme parks.
I'm new here and till today I wasn't that enthusiastic about robot toys but I love the history and design of these
objects. And I'm a huge fan of 50's streamline design, space age, about the way they thought about the future back
My question is, Today I bought these two old robot toys in boxes on a small flea market but I want to know some more information.
First one is "mechanical mighty robot" in a different box than the ones I found on google.
The second one is this gold robot that's placed in a wrong box (the box was for the television robot).
They both have numbers "mechanical" box has number 305 and the "television" box number 307

Your robots are only 5 years old. They were made by dutch company Dekotrends.

Es kracht und zischt, der Roboter macht nischt. Er kam vom Mars, und das war´s!
