Thread: HomerSapien Hunt

  1. #1

    Default HomerSapien Hunt

    For some reason, these cutesy HomerSapien robots are only in Australia: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HomerSapi.../391103593164? Peter Jakacki in Brisbane may be tripping over a roomful of these right now...

    Never seen one, but I eventually need one for my collection. No rush. Regular Robosapiens go for $10 sometimes, so I don't feel a need to pay $160 for one from Oz. If anyone sees one stateside (working and decent shape) for $60 at a yard sale or such, grab it for me and I'll pay ya plus shipping. Thanks, that would almost complete my collection... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMOtGYprBRQ

    Haha!! Yeah, right. That one made me snort some Pepsi!

    Interesting that there's no market for them in the US. Maybe technology and Homer Simpson fans are just two universes that just don't intersect here in the states. We seem to be more in the "whizzing Bart" / Pick-up truck universe!

    I am saving this video link - posting it to my blog - I can show it to my wife and others who think I've got a "robot" problem! :-)

    I am extremely jealous too!

    And I will be on the hunt for Homer for you too!

    It's only a problem when you deny it.....or something like that.

    I could take a picture of my "shelf" but it would be anti-climactic to say the least!

    And look at the guy on the Chia Dorff box at 1:21. The physical resemblance to an earlier Erco is striking.

    Your video is eerily like the opening sequence in Back to the Future, complete with ticking:

    You didn't show us where your stash of stolen plutonium is. Probably a good idea.

    If I ever update that video, you'll see more robots and even more "Dorff" gag gifts. Last year was "CindorfFella".

    Yes Gordon! I forgot to mention the Chia Dorff! And the ticking... Fantastic analysis.

    I also noticed the copy of "Walking the Bible," a great book, video, study - by Bruce Feiler.
