A few random robots

Lately I've been taking pictures of a lot of different kinds of robot figures, and here's a few that didn't fit in any larger groups. I think they all came out a vending machine at one time or another. The smaller ones in front are more recent--probably within the last 5 years or so. The two that look like game pieces are probably from the early 1990s. The yellow one in the middle is a rubbery pencil topper of Twiki from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.


  1. The blue one on the far right is the RX-78-2 Gundam. Gundam came out in '77, but is still going quite strong. The one on the left looks like a Super Robot, though I'm not sure which one.

  2. Nice! I believe I had that Twiki when I was a lad.

  3. The 2 more recent ones at the front are currently being sold under the name 'Warbots'. I'm eyeing up some bulk bags of 100 for when I've got some bills out of the way and I'm feeling a bit less poor. As far as I can tell there are 3 sculpts and they come in 6 colours.

    1. Thanks for the info! I knew I got those fairly recently but couldn't remember what they were called.
