ITEM DETAILS
Three 1980's Tomy omnibot Robots with 2 trays and 3 remotes. These are vintage Robots and almost 40 years old. they were used as displays and not toys.

All 3 were used as a robot display and did work when last tested. Have not be tested or used in years and may need new 6 volt batteries (batteries only last 4 or 5 years before needing replacing anyway). Uses a 6 volt battery like some emergency lighting systems use and usually not very expensive. One is a Robbie Sr made in Japan. All in good condition except one has slight damage to a back battery door (see photo). Only 1 charger but it's really a standard 6 volt 400ma adaptor that you can readily get or use this 1 charger to charge all 3. These originally cost around $300 Canadian each or $200 US dollars when new and can be controlled by a remote or even programmed by a front panel (cool stuff in the 1980s). It's considered a very expensive toy or a low end real robot. They can sell for around $150 or more each depending on condition and even the trays sometimes sell for $50 each.

I would like to sell all 3 as a set for $195 which is $65 each or separately for $90 each. A really cool conversation piece. they made several models but the only model up from these are the Omnibot 2000 which sell for big money.

I always wanted a Tomy Omnibot from the first time I seen the Robot B-9 Robot from Lost in Space or Robbie the Robot from Forbidden Planet because it was the closest thing to the Movie or TV Robots that I could afford.
