Tokima Digirobo Alarmtokima - MIB - Display Only

Following on from the Aquaboy, Bandai then released the Alarmtokima transforming robot watch late in 1984. Again, this was a spin-off from the main Digirobo line, featuring a functioning alarm and superb new robot design. Two markedly different variations exist; this white (or black) panelled version and a bevelled chrome version. Both are prohibitively rare and probably represent the pinnacle of the transforming watch {craze seems too strong a word!} of the 1980's.

Tomy Nyanko - MIB - £200

This is a rare Nyanko cat robot, made by Tomy in the 1980's. She is in mint deadstock condition and comes in her original box with all inserts and packaging. This was one of the last in the popular line of home pets, servants and entertainers produced by Tomy. The menagerie included Foocrow (or Hootbot) the owl, Potch (or Spotbot) the canine and finally Nyanko the cat: who never saw an original Western release (though she has recently been re-released in a new colour scheme as Kitbot). She waves her tail, unceremoniously bundles herself over, then rights herself - only to repeat the ludicrous process. A toy almost impossible to find in any condition.
