Robot Desk Set

Flashback... back... back...

When I was in the fourth and fifth grade (97 and 98), gimmicked pencil cases and desk sets like these were huge. A lot of people had ones with stuff like pop-up globes. Mine had a ratchet-dial calendar. They also had the puffy sticker covers. Mine had some sort of knock-off anime image... looking back, it may have been from a Gundam series, possibly F-91 or another of the later Tomino series.

I'd be amazed if any other extant Robot Desk Sets still have those feet components. They seem like they'd end up in the bottom of the backpack and thrown out at the end of the year...

Wow, if that toy wasn't such

Wow, if that toy wasn't such suck, I'd say it was an awesome idea.

Congrads on your first vid, Enthusiast!
One suggestion: watch the volume you record at in the future, please. I had to turn you waaaaaaaaay up to just hear you. You may want to try standing closer to the camera next time.

The closest thing I had to

The closest thing I had to this was a line of robot dinosaurs that were also stationary items (staplers, scissors, tape) in the mid 80's.

I had that

I remember those! I had the scissors/pterodactyl. I've seen military versions now and then on eBay, including a scissors/fighter jet.

Ah, the late 80s/early 90s, when everything transformed.
