Great pics, really love that original style Lava Lamp on the left with the star cutouts on the base. True classic and have one on our mantle in blue/white blobs. Apparently the same family is still making these as they have for about 50 years.

Many of the Vintage lamps like Robots are going up in price. And like Robots are becoming harder to find. Both hold there values for many many years and will continue to do so. :)

Roboto, welcome to the club! I'm new in the neighborhood myself. Nice tin, and I like the mood lighting, lends that otherworldly effect to your photos. Incidentally, you're the first lava lamp collector I've met, but I like them too having lived through the 70's (what I can remember anyway). My favorite is the bulbous rocket shaped one with the Dalek, really cool!

Thank you. I have become so into the World of Robots. This is another world of its own that is wonderful. :D

Nice pair of Robbys! But be careful! If the lava leaks from the lamps you could have molten robby meltdowns! :lol:

Finally got an Olive green Robby Billiken. They are one great tin robot to own. I have asked this question before and have looked the best I can thru this site and did a search thru google. How many were made of this Billiken series.

I did find out thur this site that only a few came with the Planet earth blaster. Thanks to Morbius for the answer on the raygun. :D

I have added my Favorite Star Wars character to my collection now. Boba Fett made in 1998 by OTTI. For a wind up he is quite heavy and has lots of detail. And the first one I have with the ID card made out of tin. He is 1392 out of the 2000 run.The lamp is my own creation.

Even the head is made of tin. The only vinyl is the hands and blaster. :)
