That's a cool little robot.
Is this a new design ?

Design, did someone say design?! Sadly, not a lot of thought went into this one...IMO.

That's a pretty low budget design if I ever saw one.

The notorious Egg Robot is from a former time when design was not yet invented. :diggin:

Cheap and unimaginative,maybe. China never stops,however. As for me, I'm parking my Japanese motorcycle, popping in a Japanese sci-fi, and playing with one or two high-quality, very imaginative and very well designed Japanese robots!!!!

I was just thinking about this topic while out robothunting. You see a lot of chinese crap toys with ZERO quality control showing up, much more thought went into designing the box of these things than the toys and then I reflected back to actual great toys and toy robots. There was a pride in making something back then and into the 80's and 90's as well. Even in the Hong Kong rack toys and figures, there was art.
