Osaka Tin Toy Institute – Robby The Robot.
A Lot is to tell about this robot and its history, the making of, the people involved and the effort it took to create this Robby The Robot in 1997 as a total remake of the Original Robby the Robot but that is not what is the most interesting about this robot.
This robot comes with most of the original drawings of the designer of this robot, Shinji Miyazawa and that is what makes this number 647 absolutely unique.
There is a small booklet that comes along with this robot in which the whole story is told, very interesting to read. I was also surprised to see the names of the people involved in this project. If you want to know all the details and if you are a real robot collector ( of course you are, otherwise you would not be reading this 🙂 than you should really have this robot in your collection !
Maybe the most funny thing is that i never even looked at this robot over the past years. Its maybe later that you start to appreciate these projects but one thing triggered it for sure and that is when i found the original drawings of this robot in Japan.
This robot is designed and build with so much love and care, you can see that when you have the robot in hands.. Its really not just an Otti Reproduction, its ART in its purest form and when you look at the original drawings than you understand immidiatly why these were very costly robots that will only go up in value over the years, I am very sure about that.
This Robby the Robot ( number 647 ) is mint original in its mint original box with all the inserts and paperwork but there is more. This particular example comes with all the drawings of Mr Shinji Miyazawa as well. Some are direct copies and some are the original drawings. The mechanism, the gun, body, dome, internals, rods, gears.. all and every part drawn out. Absolutely unique.
The more time goes by, the more I learn from the history of robots, old and new… its all history, its all great and unique….
Number 647 : Robby The Robot made by Osaka Tin Toy Institute… A special and unique example… You will never be able to have a piece of robot history as complete as this one ! Oh… and the robot also works by the way 🙂
I made a few pictures of the robots drawings.. there is much more, over 60 pages ! that will be included with Number 647 ! 🙂
