Robots have been in our heads and in the movies for years – certainly over 50 years. Thing is – our idea of how a robot looks has never really changed in all that time – we still love a box with a stiff walk and a badly synthesised voice!
In fact, we love them more than you’d imagine. There’s a huge collector’s market out there, with toy manufacturers introducing new models all the time. If you want a robot, have a look at Robot Island.
It’s packed full of the things, from original vintage robots to modern-day reproductions, not to mention all the famous film and TV stars, like this motorised wind-up Lost In Space robot, made for the Japanese market in limited numbers ands for sale on the site at $75.
