oh dear god. ted sent me an email to let me know about this new book being released in september: super #1 robot: japanese robot toys 1972-1982. at first i thought japanese robot toys? nice, but not a must have – i sort of like the 50s-60s western robots more. but after a few seconds of looking at the pictures i knew i was mistaken and it’s a definate must have. it’s not too pricey either. come september i’ll definately be having a shop here special order it for me.
