Nice looking robot, but costs too much.
Okay. First off, this is not the first time that this robot has seen the rounds of being a toy. His real name is “Robby” and he was in the old Sci/Fi movie (A major part in the movie for that fact.) titled “Forbidden Planet.” Since that time, there have been very many different variations of him. I am sixty years old now, I collect and repair toys ("Barbie," "GI Joe," "Hot Wheels," "Robots" and others.) and have seen several variations of him since I was eight. Some are no larger then three or four inches tall (I have one.) and up to about twenty inches tall. They have ranged from the wind up kind (When I was eight, my Mum got me a ten inch, blue, wind up one.) to the battery powered ones. One battery powered one (The one where he is driving a land speeder in the movie.) even sold at a toy auction for about $10,000.00 several years ago due to it being a very rare one to find and working. It would most likely go for about two to four times (Or more.) that price now! They have been named all kinds of names and at the time, (1950s to the 1960s.) all of them came from Japan and now, a rather good portion of the collectable ones come out of China. Second: This one looks good, but the price for a wind up one is rather costly for one of this size. I would pay no more then $15.00 or $20.00 for this one and then $40.00 to $45.00 (Perhaps $50.00 or more.) for a battery powered one that is twelve or twenty inches or more in size. As soon as I see a battery powered one that is made like the old ones AND comes out of Japan as they did before and stands twelve to twenty inches or more, that is the one I WILL purchase! All in all. This is a nice looking robot, but a bit too costly for a wind up recreation of “Robby” that most likely, came out of China. I will wait for a good, battery powered one out of Japan.Read More
