Vintage Robots

Post by Uncle Tony on Fri May 17, 2013 6:12 am

Toy robots are a highly collectable toy.

Classics like the Mr Atomic Robot, and Robby the Robot from the movie Forbidden Planet can sell for several thousand dollars.

Here is one I found recently in someones shed.

He is the second of 3 versions of the classic Saturn Robot....This one being banded and recalled due to it's firing rockets...

He looks very cool, and in great condition. I have a somewhat similar robot - he looks to be about the same height, and is black, and is battery operated, but his chest had three orange cannons that lit up and bounced back into his chest from 'recoil' as they 'fired' and he also have a yellow rocket launcher on either side of his head.

He's in a state of disrepair at the moment, but it would certainly be neat to acquire another one. I'll have to see what other designs Kamco made - maybe he's from their line-up.

If I can find an image on Google I will post it - maybe you have one in stock or know where to get one.

This is what I have left of my poor tortured robot - as I've said, I think he had yellow rocket launchers on his head. I don't know his name, or who made him. He has 'Made in Hong Kong' (no year), and a strange little emblem made up of a smiley face wearing a top hat and bow tie above what looks like the letter 'K'.

I found his name! Yay for diligent searching!

He's an Action Robot with a Space Commander Robot's head from Playwell, near as I can tell.

Here's a complete one (on the far left):
