Tandy / Radio Shack Talking Robie
SOLD: AU$40 on 12th June 2017
Condition: New in box.


For sale here is a vintage Tandy / Radio Shack Talking Robie robot. This is a radio controlled robot that was released in about 1987, and which features simple forward and reverse-turn movement (controlled via button on the transmitter), along with a walkie-talkie function – speak into the handset, and the sound will be broadcast from the robot itself. The robot’s hands are also spring loaded, for holding small objects – so you can wheel him into another room to deliver something, while doing your best robot impersonation through the speaker.

The mid 1980s saw a craze of updated robot toys featuring a new wave of interesting functions and gimmicks that went far beyond the tin robot toys of earlier decades. Tandy / Radio Shack stores stocked a couple of robot models, including Talking Robie. With his very 1980s retro looks, and retro space-age transmitter, this example is in mint/brand new condition, and is 100% working. The box has a little wear, but is very good overall. A worthy addition to any collection of 1980s robot toys.

Please see the photos to understand the condition. Feel free to contact me to find out more.
