No, I'm not dying AFAIK. Well slowly, but aren't we all?
And yes, I still love the Toddler you guys all pitched in for and bought me from Andy ~2 years ago. But there's just one last robot I need for my collection, and if you guys can see fit to chipping in again and buying it for me, I'll never ask for anything again. I understand it might take a while to raise the $100K, but I don't mind waiting up to a week... https://www.ebay.com/itm/323297573678
I'll even pony up for the $290 shipping.
This "Gang of Four" includes the Holy Grail of toy robots IMO, the rare 1958 Masudaya "Radicon" R/C robot. Uses a powdered metal coherer to electromechanically cycle through drive modes to stop, go, and turn. I've never seen one on Ebay before.
Except for this older video:
"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."
