The Dawesome Robots and Space Toy Collection
From a young age I've always loved science-fiction and especially robots, first brought on after seeing Forbidden Planet for the first time, with the now iconic Robby the Robot. A few years ago I bought a box of about twelve vintage toy robots from Ebay and as luck would have it some of them were actually ones collectors will often seek out. After some more investigation and learning some more about the different makes I've now been adding to these initial purchases, concentrating on mainly Japanese robots from the Horikawa brand, often manufactured by Metal House Robots. Originally I started with a few replicas but now I concentrate on originals ideally with the box, even better if the box is the Japanese version. Below are some of my favourites from my collection so far.
