Hi Fellow Robot Enthusiasts,
I haven't posted for awhile but now I finally have something new to talk about. I just purchased a very rare Nomura Robins Egg Blue Pug Robot. It was a risky purchase for me because the seller's pictures of the robot looked silver, not robins egg blue. In fact, the seller said the robot was silver, not blue silver and certainly not robins egg blue silver. But he may have not known of the rare blue since he was selling the robot for someone else and they were selling the pug for only the less rare silver pug price. Hmm, maybe worth purchasing despite the apparent disparity in color? Lastly, the seller wanted to sell the robot to me directly without the benefit of buyers protection like what Ebay provides so I was a little worried that this might not be legitimate. Well, to make a long story short, I chanced the purchase because although the robot looked silver (wrong color) in the seller's pictures it had horizontal antenna (correct for blue pug) and a D-cell battery controller (correct for blue pug). E.
At the end, everthing turned out fine thanks to the seller from Germany who was honest. Here are pictures to show you how this blue pug differs from a silver pug. You may notice that the battery wires attach to the bottom of the body differently between the two versions as well. I really love the blue color and I never thought I would come across this robot in person but I kept an eye out for it nevertheless.
Hey, I wanted to let you know that I appreciate all your postings on this board. Please keep on posting!
All The Best!
