Robot Tober Day thirty-one


For the final Robot Tober post I sharing one of my old toys.  Gaiking is from the Shogun Warrior toy line. The figure was 2 foot tall and on of the coolest toys I’ve owned. This is a close up of his torso cause it is a face so reminds me of a Jack’olantern since today is Halloween.

Robot Tober Day Eightteen the lost post!


It’s still Robottober. Today’s post is a Yoda Archives classic, meaning it appeared on this blog back in 2011. It’s Gaiking from the Shogun Warriors.

Yoda finds a new weapon to fight the droid army, Gaiking.

Why is it the lost post? I posted it late on the 18th. But just found it in my drafts meaning it has not been posted to the blog but. It showed up on my social media site which are connected to the wordpress blog. I use Publish to send post to Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook. The pic is there but it wasn’t posted here.

Robot Tober Day Fourteen


Today’s Robot Is Bumble Bee.

Robot Tober Day Thriteen


Yesterday’s Robot was  Generation 1 Huffer. Today toy is the Kreon version of Huffer. He’s from the series three KRE-O Micro changers. The Micro changers let you build either the robot or vehicle version of the characters. I like the grimace on his face. The torso paint is better than the Prowl Kreon.  When the Micro changers were released I said I liked the parts but wanted more painting details. Huffer has more details and I still love the helmets.

Both Figures together for comparison , 1984 and 2013 versions of Huffer.

Robot Tober Day Twelve


Today’s Robot Tober item is a Generation 1 Huffer. I never got a big Optimus Prime Semi truck when I was young. The character was not as cool as many but he was a big rig. And that was cool. He was mini-bot scale, which means even though he was a big rig he was smaller than the cars that were made on a larger scale.

Robot Tober Day Eleven


Today’s Robot Tober item is a Cyberman from Doctor Who Character Building series 1. Even in miniature they are menacing. I used photoshop to give him a classic feel.

The city placed a Speed Calming device in my Neighbor hood. It is a movable radar with a speed display. As you approach, it shows you how fast you are driving.
