Starting over!

36 posts in this topic

After having 2 half decent collections,selling them off (I never learn) I am back to square one. At least the repros have made me rekindle my interest along with finding my Roby a few weeks ago. All squashed in like sardines in a can at the moment! The T.V. Spaceman and the Fighting Robot I have had since I was a kid.Still have the much missed Mr.Gosses fantastic 3 Gustavs.If I just had little else but those I would be happy, love my strenco robots too! The Smoking Spaceman is Stamped number one! Go on,now tell me half of you have one stamped the same and that there are loads of them! Ha,I would not be surprised. I still have maybe 50 or 60 other boxed robots though around 30 are probably repro ARM.I will sell some and get a real one...again. Posted some pics so you can feel sorry for me!

Great collection, so many repro ARMs, and 3 Gustavs, don't know if you remember offering me a Daiya Ranger when you was selling years ago, if only I had taken up your offer, been after one ever since. :diggin:

Hi MRH,thanks for your sympathy vote.Yes,I do remember offering you the Ranger Robot.If only you had bought it and better still,if only I had kept it! Ha,such is life eh? Sorry Brian,I should have put the garage robots in a different section. Yes MRH, a lot of ARM robots,lots of little differences one notices both with the robots and the boxes. I like the ARM,should have kept the real one I had.

Ranger, your number 1 TTT smoker, a much underrated repro, looks quality. I see it has the arm tabs that are missing from the recent crop of dark grey/black HaHa smokers, although I have a HaHa smoker with the arm tabs and the same sort of metallic charcoal grey finish, no number stamping of course, but have never seen another HaHa like it, but there must be plenty of them out there. Must have been an earlier HaHa just after they started using Tom's equipment.

And BTW, I've never seen another TTT number 1 smoker.

It's your "private collection'. Garage robots are completely welcomed here. Nice collection.

Hi

If you have just come here after looking at my topic re a new cabinet to fill up...prepare to fall asleep with boredom! There are still some toys yet to find. The Alps and Horihawa are the ones my brother and myself had new in 1964. A few pics are from a different cabinet.
