Well, I don't know about you, but I have been searching for this elusive robot for many years. For whatever reason, although all the other characters from this Gerry Anderson Supermarionation show's cast have been produced in toy, and puppet form, Robert has always been missing in action.
Yes, of course there are the tiny 1 inch plastic figures from the toy set, but that is just too small. I have seen custom figures made by modelers and hobbyists from the UK, but none have been available for sale. Ah, until now that is...currently on "the Bay" is a beautiful scratch built 1:1 scale figure of Robert that is simply breath taking! It is scaled to the original puppet, so it measures 22 inches tall. This fellow has made many prop replicas from the show and has quite a library to draw from.

The details are the best I have seen, based on the few close up shots I have found of the puppet. Additionally...well, you can't beat the scale of the piece!

Alas, as it is just within my grasp, I sadly will not be adding him to my collection, he clocks in at $1462.97 US, and that, my friends, is just too rich for my blood.
