Special Comments:
This robot is designed to look like much older toy robot styles.  He may be a replica of an actual antique robot, but I'm not sure about that.  The metal seams on his legs and arms that probably looked cheap in the 50's or 60's when these types were made, actually excite robot collectors (well, maybe just me).  They are a glimpse into the past, and the way metal toys were made long ago.  This robot is fairly modern, but in many ways it captures something of a fading era.  I have had difficulty capturing motion shots when photographing some of my robots.  The picture on the right is a "partial" motion shot : )
