Strobot 3000 – Smoking Toy Robot with Strobe Lights
STROBOT 3000 is a smoking robot toy with awesome strobe lighting effects. The robot walks forward with flashing eyes and strobe lights set inside the translucent arms. It raises his arm, fires with a ‘rat-a-tat-tat’ sound and smoke billows out of its mouth. EPIC!!
Made by New Bright International Co. in the mid 1980s (1984) this toy is huge! at around 18 inches tall. I love the retro graphics on the chest panel and the MC badge. I also love that the headphones double up as a useful handle to carry the toy around.
There is an on/off switch on the back of the head as well as a ‘quick demo’ button on the left foot. It takes 4 AA batteries that neatly hide inside the sculpted back panel. To make the robot smoke you add a couple of drops of vegetable oil into a tiny hole on his head.
