Topics I've Started

Hi everyone, I'm trying to locate a picture I have of what I believe to be THE rarest robot out there. It has a plastic traffic signal head and a tin skirted body, made in Japan in the 60's, I have the photo in a reference book but can't find it?

I've also trawled the database and can't see the picture there? Can you help?





I've Not Seen This One Before!

This morning I picked up this large chunky plastic toy robot. He was sold through the "Mothercare" baby stores in the UK, but I'm not sure when? He has a multitude of functions all designed to keep the child occupied


( he's certainly kept me amused this evening!) :rolling:

Surprise On Tv!

There I was watching a real classic movie "Duel" , Steven Spielberg's first outing as a director. I suddenly had to rewind, freeze frame, and take a pic of this short scene where his wife is talking to him on the phone whilst keeping an eye on the children...as you can see, they have the coolest toy to play with!

Robot Coffee Table?

I spotted this retro fish tank / coffee table in a junk shop and saw the potential at once. You can have "The Robot Of The Day" as the top just lifts off, I'm thinking of spraying the legs a different colour...maybe red?
