Space Water Pistol...internal Cleaning?

27 October 2014 - 02:36 AM

I found this Hong Kong made gun over the weekend and was wondering if anyone had information on it, I don't think it appears in the database although I seem to remember it in a past thread?  Also, can someone provide suggestions for cleaning the inards of water guns, this example needs help? It's 5.5 inches long and has a brass tip, which may point to it being an early gun.

Another Tin Litho Space Gun

20 October 2014 - 01:35 AM

For the past few weeks I've seen a set of five tin litho space guns up for auction, not realizing till the second listing they were being auctioned by our own  Fineas J. Whoopie.  One of the five guns caught my eye because I'd never seen this particular litho design or raised plastic corrugated windows at the front. Fortunately for me, the set didn't sell allowing me to acquire the gun for my tin space gun collection.  I didn't find it in the space gun archives; has anyone seen this version before or have information on it, it was made in Japan?

The auction just closed for this great Buck Rogers picture...I never would have guessed it would sell for $248.00!

Robert The Robot Record Box

29 August 2014 - 09:01 PM

Years ago I purchased a Robert the Robot in need of love and when I opened him up, found his record box was all but shattered.  Today I found one on eBay and jumped at the chance to replace the part without having to purchase a whole robot.  The player is supposed to work (as well as they do) but I noticed the handle on the crank was black; memory told me they were red.  I did an image search and found the below pic showing a black handle.  My Robert is a second generation robot, having the clear plastic eyes and antenna but no compartment for tools; what is the correct handle color for this version or were they released in both colors?  I also remember the handles being made of wood when this one appears to be plastic; the pic I found seems to show a black plastic handle.  Heck, are the record boxes even interchangable between Robert versions; is there a chance this box won't fit?
