Here's a 1970 trade ad showing Robbie with an oval antenna. I forget what the 1969 sighting showed, oval or rectangular. Perhaps it'll turn up again.

Billy Blastoff's Robbie is another want for my collection. I can't believe how expensive he gets, that, plus he usually is missing either the antenna or the battery box. Someday I'll grab a good one for under $100...then again, maybe not.
