Tomy Windup Robot from 1978

My grandmother bought one of these for me and I absolute loved that robot. I had told my wife about it and she tried many times to get me one on eBay but she always seemed to get outbid. I also tried a few times on eBay myself and was also outbid. It was just more than I wanted to pay for it.

A couple of years ago I was at my parents for Christmas. My dad and I were going thru two old wooden toy chests that were still in the basement. Lo and behold, I found that robot in one of the chests. I was thrilled beyond belief that I still had it. I thought it was lost all these years. It is now home and on display in my office.
