Pin Walking Action

‘Pin Walking Action’ works using metal pins in the bottom of each foot. As the pins move in and out as well as forward to backward along a slot, they slowly move the robot forward one step at a time. The motion produced is very clunky and robotic; it’s more of a waddle than a walk.

The Legend of Electra Robot – Schylling Collector Series Tin Toy

Uncover the legend of Electra Robot. A strange fembot robot that arrived on Earth in a giant spaceship holding a lightning bolt in her hand. With curly wire hair and a purple dress she is both ominous and (seemingly) harmless. Electra’s appearance is reminiscent of Rosie the Robot from The Jetsons as well as Maria from the movie “Metropolis”. Electra is a limited edition collector series wind up tin toy robot produced by Schylling. A beautifully detailed clockwork tin robot with pin walking action and swaying arms.
