Yes they are. But for many new collectors like myself if Osaka and MH and Papa san stop making tin toys will interest in tin Robots fad away since the cost to buy vintage is up there in price. I have a few vintage ones but like looking for the repro ones as a hobbie. The way thinks are now with the economy buying a few vintage ones for thousands of $$$ is no longer valid. I hope many new members will still buy the new and repro ones even with a meal inside just to keep sales going strong for Metal house the interest is needed for all to survive till we see a turn around. I know same robot different color choice but the fun is still there to collect a line for the colors. :D

Metal House has released 3 new versions with fly eyes . However these are the 3 older versions to look for in Gears-Pistons and Video. I like the older version somewhat better they have that 2 tone body color version to them. 🙂

While looking for the Sinister Creep in that great ink jet finish another version was released in a red finish . Not many were made yet they are also one to look for if and when they ever appear. Still nice to see Papa San trying to add a different version to the Creep line. 🙂

Two great Robby wind ups to look for only a few came with the Planet earth ray gun. Both from Billiken 1993 in 2 nice colors Brown and Olive green. The box also makes this one Robot to look for. 😄

Great looking Astro Boy. I have not seen one in this color very cool. :)

The packaging is almost as nice as the robot itself. The box is all black with an Astro Boy logo, as is the card with the production number.

Another white version to look for is like the version with T-28 as the driver with black boots. This version has a Astronaut as the driver with red boots. Seems 2 versions were done in the white Astronaut cockpit driver version one has a blue Astronaut and the other has a white suited Astronaut 🙂
