so this time Batman stuff is peeping here (k, there r other figures around, but i act by instinct when i´m writing my comments)... that next to the Dart Vader figure is a LEGO Batwing, i guess so, pretty interesting, but i still prefer the C3 version... & that robot from that very old TV series i can’t remember, his old fashion look is somehow attractive, pretty in the Art Deco mood...

Love that Robby! It's the first one I ever bought, right before I began collecting vintage toys. I was in love with classic science fiction, and when I saw this bad-boy sitting on the toy shelf, I had to have it.

It's one of the few modern toys that's still in my collection. Lots of fun!

Who's the space man peeking out in the background?

Robbie the Robot! Where did you pick him up at Chunky?

@ chrismandesign- I think the best part of the candid photos is getting your take on the subject matter, always a joy to read. Also, yes that is the Lego Batwing, cool, but I prefer the C3 one(s) as well.

@doc atomic - The peeking space man is a bobble head, first one I bought, by Funko, it's the Funko Space Cadet. One of the earlier bobble heads from them I believe. The Trendmasters Robby is actually my only Robby, I always meant to pick up a few of the tin ones. Kinda weird seeing how Forbidon Planet is one of my favorite movies. By the way I picked it up at an outlet toy store for 2.50. The box was pretty trashed, so I picked through the five or d
so they had for the best one. That was years ago, good times.

jboypacman- This was a score from a KB Toys outlet store, years ago, KB are all closed here now, they had a couple of outlet stores where they would clearance stuff out, it was like a giant garage sale of nothing but toys. The outlet stores stayed open for a year or two after the regular KB stored all closed. They are all gone here now.

Oh KB Toys yup we used to have a few in our area but are all closed down too and what a shame because you could really find some great deals on things there.
