Inspiration: Vintage Robot Toys

Inspiration: Vintage Robot Toys


Last year when LIFE  & Getty Images launched life.com, with it they published a record of their rich visual history from the last century. The other day I found the Trippy Space-age Toy Art gallery (via Found in Mom's BasementTokyo Mango) and was inspired to look for more robots. Luckily, I came across Gasoline Ally Antiques, which sells--or has sold, all of the robots pictured, along with many other pop antiques and collectables.
