Hey Gobi!

(sorry for the public post on my blog, but I don't have your email and you have comments shut off, so this is the only way I can get a hold of you...)

That's NOT a fan-mode, dude, that's the New Microman MicroRobot 7 "Four-Walker" and "Three-Walker" sets.  I have them (the box set of all seven Microrobots was my first expensive Microman purchase back in 1989!) and they rock.   Here's some of my old pics for comparison from my old site's archive: http://www.rockettubes.net/rescuebaseseattle/micr7.html

Better yet, here's Paul's link on the subject:

The Microrobots I believe were one of Koujin Ohno's ideas, the man pretty much responsible for "inventing" Transformers via Car-Robots.  I'm sure the Microrobots were in turn the genesis of the Blockman toyline. :)

Just thought you'd like to know.... :)

4-Walker ... ah, so
Thanks for the heads-up.

I will now ritually disembowel myself for I have brought dishonour to my ancestors.
