Worst Spaceman Toy Ever?

18 January 2015 - 01:54 PM

Who has a so called 'Spaceman' toy worse than this? I think it will be hard to beat. Talk about trade descriptions! Any kid who got this would have been a bit confused,it's a cowboy,well sort of and the alternate face is like a clowns.Must have been something of a disappointment to say the least. It has 2/6 written on it,what a rip off! Oh,made in H.K.It's no good contacting me,I could never part with such a rare toy,you will be pleased to know! Ironically, it probably is rare for what it is.
Notice how vivid the colours are esp when it must date from the 1960's at least.It never sees the light of day,and rightly so!

A Bargain Rosko Astronaut?

18 January 2015 - 12:36 PM

I found this Red Rosko Astronaut which I think is a bargain but the seller only ships within the USA otherwise I would be tempted.Has anyone any experience of buying through etsy? Anyway,good luck to whomever bags it! I saw several good price robots on this site,Ray guns and space figures.You lucky people! Good hunting!


Who Made These Robots?

16 January 2015 - 03:14 PM

Does anyone know who made these and when? I remember seeing them somewhere before but can't for the life of me remember where!  They are approx 6.75" tall,tin and plastic.Nice lithography and neat wind up mechanism which double As cams to move the arms.Sorry once again re photo quality,the kindle isn't great and always flashes.

Looking for Metalmania Mighty Robot.

Postman has just been,Christmas carries on! I bought these for $175 as a BIN.The listing said only the red one is working.Well,I like a challenge and unless there are bits missing I am pretty sure I can get them all to work.I have already got the robot 2000 working perfectly. Two of the R1 robots have something clunking and rattling around inside,sounds like the motor has come loose? I looked at the tabs,don't looks as though they have been tampered with at all. I won't have chance till the weekend to 'operate' on them. Looks like decorating the house will be on hold....again! Wish I had won the yellow rescue robot I missed on ebay here in the UK a few weeks ago.Anyway,got to find a home for this lot and their boxes now! Oh,if anyone is interested,the robot 2000 does have the flashing light on top of his head.
