This is one robot I hope to own someday, to add to my blow molded Mexican robot collection.

Is there a thread about your blow molded Mexican robot collection? I'm curious about it.

6Stelab9,

               No, I don’t think I ever made a post about them. I don’t want to Bogart this post, but I have an affinity for these somewhat comical little robots; they have a certain charm. I only own 6 examples; there are 5 in this grouping, from back to front: the tall silver bank on the left, a green on on the right, and the 3 most commonly found in front, including the extremely rare “killer robot” with the orange guns in the center (the guns are always missing). Click on the photos to see a bigger picture.

And this handsome fellow, is one of my favorites.

Thank you for sharing Tinplate6. I have never seen those strange robots before. It's always nice to discover new toys. I like green one on the back. Funny face.

Was watching this one on eBay.

 

Ended yesterday for a really good price...

 

This is the 3rd one i saw in 5 years time, are they that seldom? The alps rocketman you really see often actually...😕

 

What is your opinion guys about these banks?

Who has one in his collection?

You like him or thinks he’s ugly?

All robots are special 🙌 .....the good, the bad and the ugly.

I like the dark green one in the upper right side.

 

First time I ever seen these....that bottom one looks like he could hypnotize me. Barbershop looking pattern.

Do the eyes  👀   toggle or something ?
