Well, we all collect things. About 20 years ago, my wife came home with a 2 foot tall night light in the form of Betty Boop. That started the whole darn business. I now have about 100 pieces of BB, and some of it worth a whole lot more than pocket change. I then bought a box of toys at an estate auction, which was marked with the words, Betty Boop stuff. I paid $50 for it as I recall. One of the BB things was worth almost 5 times what I paid, so I was happy. But also in that box, was an original Robby Robot, still in its original, unopened packaging. If I am to believe what the Collector's Bible says about the toy, I could easily buy two Flex air rifles, and have money left over.

So keep collecting, as you'll never know what will turn up!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Lol, all kidding aside, some of the iron stuff was pretty cool too. Way before my time though...

There were some really cool toys made years ago.
The clock work mechanisms were amazing

I think I owned a similar robot, back when I was a kid. Ah, the good old days!  :)
