I Completely understand what you are saying John and WJN, but I also think it's only fair to ask ourselves if this same project would bother us if it were the work of Henk Gosses?

I probably wouldn't feel any different, unless it was my own work. :thumbs:

The robot collector in me loves this robot, but the antique collector/preservationist in me sides with John Rigg on this one. The duality of man, I guess….

Can't help with the above little guy, but I like it a lot.

Odd that he only has an arm on one side.

 

This was given to me years ago, and they insisted it was Cracker Jack, but I'm not convinced.

Oddly, the arms are completely loose & slide from one balled fist to the other.

The robots on the front left are from a Japanese TV show called  Golden Warrior Gold Lightan, which aired in the early 80s. Each of the robots transforms into a lighter, as well as having some special gimmick - for instance Time Lightan has a head that doubles as an egg timer! To my knowledge they were never exported to America or England, but you can still buy them from Japan...
 

I have that golden lighter 'bot squirreled away somewhere if memory serves.
