The majority of plastic robots I have seen were screwed together - I am thinking mostly of the vintage Hong Kong or early American styles.  There are definitely some that are glued though.

I am liking those long engines,  both my atom rocket 7 and planet explorer have the short ones.

I found this:
"The first machine that recognized speech was probably a commercial toy named “Radio Rex” which was sold in the 1920’s. Rex was a celluloid dog that moved (by means of a spring) when the spring was released by 500 Hz acoustic energy. Since 500 Hz is roughly the first formant of the vowel [eh] in “Rex”, the dog seemed to come when he was called. (David, Jr. and Selfridge, 1962)"
