THE MORBIUS COLLECTION

Thanks Roboto.  The new additions have a different key on them, they appear to be the knock-offs of the Durham versions. This Durham version also has different decals on front/back.

New items thanks to Ranger,  thank you for the complimentary and surprize additions to our little museum.  Kelly, myself and Laurie all love these guys, there's something about these little 'pocket-'bots'.   Kelly brightened up big time..."That's really cool, I remember that one" referring to the purple leg version she played with as a kid and then one day the 'bot literally crumbled into oblivion.

 

They all have their charm in a different way than the $$$ tin that they reside next to. Love the L.I.S. details on the little off-white guy, never seen this one before.  How'd you know I love copper-bots?

 

Thankyou Ranger, made my day.  And they got across the pond quicker than I could send a local letter in my own town.

 

Blue-purple guy is now with his brothers (although the yellow one appears to be a knock-off).

 

3 thumbs up!:thumbs:

Hi Mike

Glad they all made it in one piece. The copper robot is 'Bramen' robot from the British TV puppet series 'Thunderbirds' in the 1960's. Bramen was created by Brains.

Laurie says a big thank you too, she loves 'em.  

 

We'll always know where these came from, it wouldn't be such a collection without the Alphadromers involved in it and a piece of many 'dromers on our shelves.   It's truly an international gathering in our cabinets.  I've noticed too over the years, the ones we bought in Canada mirror the ones in Europe colour-wise especially, the U.S. versions are often quite different from the those.

 

Thanks again, brought some fun in the mail for a change.

Those small wind up Star robots are cool. I've just picked up the yellow one some days ago (have a look at my collection).

Your collection is great. I like the mix between the classic tin  robots and the plastic ones. I particulary appreciate your orange section. Suprisingly,  so few robots were made with that color which was so popular in the 60's and 70's.

My apologies Ranger...I forgot to mention the Z-windup fella with the twirling arms, thank you for sending this guy too, lots of fun and fits right in with the original Tomy 'bots.  I appreciate them all.
